This knife is what I carry myself in the woods and was created based on my experience using a knife for "Bushcraft" - Crafting a comfortable living from and with the forest!
Woodsmans Finest - Boreal Prototype
I spend most of the time processing raw materials, doing food preparation and carving implements for my camp, like pot hooks, tent stakes, spoons and ladles. As a spoon carver I know what the ergonomics of a knife have to be in order to perform well, over and extended period!
The features also go along with most of Mors Kochanski´s famous guidlines for a knife designed or the boreal forest.
- continuous curve
- around 4"/10cm
- 90 degree spine
I added a slightly recurved tip for more secure gutting and rescue cuts, a higher scandivex grind which is more comfortable to use in food prep and a sharpening choil on the blade.
- 1084 Carbon Steel - my favourite steel
- Blade Length: approx 4" - 10cm
- Blade thickness: 1/8" - 3.3mm
- Handle Material: Thuya Burl, held on by brass pins
- Handle Length: 4.5" - 11.5cm
Deep Carry Sheath: Handstitched Vegtan Tooling leather, oil dyed, embossed, with handrubbed finish to keep your knife and you secure!
This knife is for sale because of a little brass shaving that got peeled by a tang hole and wedged itself between tang and scale. It is hardly visible and doenst cause any problems what so ever, but doesn´t meet my standards.
Your chance to get a great Discount!
You can send any of my items back for a full refund upon arrival, minus shipping and handling costs.
Since I am the craftsman myself, all the items are described as precisely as they lie in front of me.
For a refund they have to be unused and undamaged and I don´t refund import costs.
Please keep in mind, that due to my overhead as a craftsman, refunds are a quite substantial, financial loss, so please buy consciously! Thank you!
