O1 Tool Steel
Scandi Grind to Zero
JRE Leather Sheath with Firesteel loop and removable dangler for multiple carry options
Large oval handle which tapers from front to back and is swelled in the middle to fill your hand. #1 priority of a bush knife is carving and cutting. This handle fills your hand in comfort for all day work with no hot spots or cramping. This is very important if you need to peel a dozen sticks for a set of Roycroft snowshoes!
This handle will feel best with average to large hands and is comfortable in many working positions including a reverse grip using it as a one handed draw knife.
O1 Tool steel, this carbon steel holds a excellent edge and is easy to sharpen and maintain.
Full Tang 1" wide blade 1/8" thick, 3 1/2" long, a palm width.
These dimensions are chosen as a good combination of strength with a blade thin enough not to loose cutting and carving ability.
Scandi grind blade, as the main purpose of a bush knife is peeling sticks and carving.
Full continuous curve on the cutting edge makes sharpening easier and ensures you are cutting wood fibers, meat, etc. on a angle which is always more efficient.
The full curve also gives this knife a narrow tip which handles like alot smaller knife for fine wood carving detail.
The spine on the knife is ground square to be used as a scraper on wood or to run your firesteel.
We sized the sheath to take about 2/3 of the handle as is the scandinavian style for a secure sheath, you may want to add a cord lanyard on the end of the knife.
Firesteel loop for the 3/8" Army size firesteel.
Belt dangler attachment which is nice for sitting down and hanging a bit lower when wearing cold weather layers. You can remove the dangler and run the sheath on your belt or add a neck cord.
