Handforged full tang drawknives cut from one piece of lumber mill sawblade steel, no welds or moving parts. Hand made in a sustainable and traditional manner using headsaw steel.
Time and effort is involved processing this steel but it is well worth it. We harden and differentially temper high carbon L6 and 5160 steel to hold a superb edge. Hand carved fruitwood handles are fit for comfort. You can request the handles to be wrapped in leather.
