                                       Knife Description
These knives are crafted from high quality 01 tool steel (Steel specification follows) and
professionally hardened and tempered to a Rockwell value of 59-60. The blade is a clip point
design with a Scandinavian bevel – providing an efficient and easily maintainable edge both in the
workshop and in the field. Each blade is fitted with a choice of ergonomically shaped hardwood
handles and vulcanised fibre liners bonded to the knife’s full tang with epoxy resin and brass cutlers
rivets.
Each blade is hand rubbed to a 2500-grit mirror polish and oiled to prevent oxidation. The handle
scales are sanded through to 800 grit and finished with Brixwax ™, providing a weatherproof
smooth finish. Each knife is supplied with a hand stitched leather sheath (either left or right
handed/hip) with a riveted leather belt loop, available in a variety of colours (both leather and
stitching). The sheath is oiled and waxed to ensure a long life and is individually formed to fit each
knife.
Each knife is supplied with a small booklet entitled “understanding you knife”, which explains the
processes that went in to making your knife, and the steps you should take to care for and maintain
your knife throughout its life.
