Never lose your knife in the shavings again…
Hand forged approx 90mm slöjd knife.
I use high quality tool steel for these blades and depending on the batch being worked could be forged from O1, 52100, 15N20 or 1080 – all precision kiln heat treated by both temperature and time to ensure a fair balance between sharpness and edge retention.
They come hollow ground for ease of sharpening and are hand honed and polished to a razor-sharp edge using Japanese Waterstones and will arrive with a thin coating of Camelia oil to protect the blade in transit.
They have long tangs that are first burned into a pre-drilled pilot hole in the handle before being removed and then firmly and permanently set with epoxy.
All have ash handles that are 125mm long and multi-faceted (12 sides) – all are rough sanded before being finished with multiple coats of milk paint, leaving a beautifully smooth handle that still retains evidence of the ash grain before being treated to a raw linseed and beeswax finish.
They are shipped with a traditional and functional woven bark sheath – this batch will all be birch and will be custom shaped and fitted to the blade rather than the ‘standard’ rectangular.
Lead time to shipping is approximately 3-4 weeks.
