Let's take a look at our bushcraft knife model the Classic.
Shape. Based off of the Woodlore style knife, this is a time-tested and proven design for use in bushcraft. This model has at least slightly influenced many of our other models, as it has an excellent blend of simplicity, robustness, and finesse.
Blade. The blade has a cutting edge length just over 4 inches, with an overall blade length of roughly 4.35 inches. The blade shape is a strong drop-point to where the tip is roughly in line with the center of the handle. The blade has a flat portion for push-cuts for approximately 2 inches of the edge before it takes a gradual curve up to the tip. This blade shape is very durable, yet allows for intricate whittling and fine detail work.
The steel is O1 high-carbon tool steel, tempered and cryo-treated to a 59 rockwell hardness. The blade is 9/64 inches (3.5 mm) thick, and sports a razor sharp scandi grind. The scandi grind excels at woodworking tasks, so paired up with the blade shape you have an excellent tool for bushcraft woodworking oriented chores. The spine is a nice sharp 90 degrees for scraping.
Handle. The handle is 4.5 inches long and features a coke-bottle contour. The profile has a miniature fingerguard, which is just enough to make you aware of the edge, but not enough to interfere with various grips. The pommel (bottom of the handle) is flared, and the profile has a finger-catch; a point which resembles the finger-guard in size and shape. This flare is useful for taking the knife in and out of the sheath, for "choking down" for leuku style wrist-flick chopping, and to help with a secure grip if your hands are cold or wet.
Matching Firesteel. We have the option to purchase a matching 3 x 3/8 firesteel. We recommend using the spine of your knife or a dedicated firesteel striker.
Sheath. We have a variety of different handmade leather sheath options available. The sheaths are also made by us out of 7-8 oz English bridle leather by the top American leather manufacturer, Wickett & Craig. We have four color options to choose from. All of our sheaths come double-stitched. We have the option to add a firesteel loop or removable dangler, which allows the sheath to ride lower than your backpack's hip belt.
Warranty & Touch-Ups. We have an "heirloom" warranty, ensuring the knife's coverage no matter how many times it is handed down or traded. We also offer a free touch-up service, so don't be shy to put your knife through it's paces, because we can always get it looking new again.
Materials & Availability. We offer a variety of materials for our knife models, with different handle scale material, liners, and hardware. We often change up what options we are offering, and sometimes we won't offer a certain combination for weeks, months, or even years. Currently our best-sellers are ivory paper micarta, green canvas micarta, and Arizona desert ironwood. We try to keep those combinations available, though they, too, may go out of stock.
