Readymade knives and all knifemaking components for hunters, fishermen, bushcraft enthusiasts and collectors.

Readymade knives and all knifemaking components for hunters, fishermen, bushcraft enthusiasts and collectors.


All of OUR knives are made from the very best Carbon, Damascus, Laminated, Semi Stainless or Stainless Steel. With handles or scales to compliment the style of the steel blank and hand sewn wet moulded sheaths that are purely to our patterns and designs. Costs range from £100-£800 for a knife and sheath.

Our materials are sourced from sustainable areas of the world, such as the UK, America, Scandinavia, Africa and Australia. We use coloured Vulcanised Fibre, Acrylics, Brass, Nickel Silver, Moose, Woolly Mammoth, Reindeer Antler spacers and caps, with different types of bolsters that add extra style to all of our knives.

We have plenty of UK woods standing in planks as well as Micarta and Acrylics in sheet form, ready to be used, so handle sizes are not a problem.
Every knife and its components are gathered and matched at the time of making, together with an individually hand sewn and wet moulded vegetable tanned leather sheath. There will be some slight variation in the design and no two knives will be quite the same.

COMPREHENSIVE RANGE
We are always coming up with new ideas and shapes using the very latest materials and techniques with over 140 knives in our collection.

Concalo Alves Long Grain

Concalo Alves Long Grain

6.00

Concalo Aves is a hardwood (from the Brazilian Portuguese name, gonçalo-alves). It is sometimes referred to as zebrawood or tigerwood - names that underscore the wood's often dramatic, contrasting color scheme, that some compare to rosewood.
While the sapwood is very light in color, the heartwood is a sombre brown, with dark streaks that give it a unique look. The wood's color deepens with exposure and age and even the plainer-looking wood has a natural luster.

Block Dimensions: 27 x 42 x 135mm Part Seasoned.
