Description

Never lose your knife in the shavings again…

Hand forged 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.

Blade length – 81mm.

This knife is available for shipping immediately.
