Readymade Tools and all Toolmaking components for hunters, fishermen, bushcraft enthusiasts and collectors.

Readymade Tools and all Toolmaking components for hunters, fishermen, bushcraft enthusiasts and collectors.

All of OUR Tools 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 £75-£800 for a complete item including 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.

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 tool 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 units 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 tools in our collection.

A new Resin 4oz Kit from the USA.

BladeBond Ultra is an unadulterated high performance Polyamine based epoxy system designed to give superior results under extreme conditions. BladeBond Ultra exhibits outstanding permanence on a wide variety of surfaces including hard to bond substrates like oily woods and some thermoplastics. BladeBond Ultra will NEVER shrink and is formulated to retain flexibility under all environmental circumstances. Ultra is measured and mixed in a convenient 1:1 ratio by volume, and has a pot life of 45 min, at 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Usable cure is achieved in 12 hours, but can be force cured at 125 degrees in 2 hours.. When fully cured BladeBond Ultra can be machined, drilled and tapped, and is totally immune to, and unaffected by water, rot and most common solvents and chemicals.

Now one of the main abrasives for knifemakers. Sheet size 115mm x 250mm.

I cut this into strips and because of its flexibility it is great to work with, the finish on metal and wood is superb

The unique patented sanding material contains thousands of small holes which hold the dust and other particles without clogging the disc surface. The result is seen as a very uniform sanding pattern and a perfectly smooth surface. Since the amount of airborne dust has been minimized, the workshop stays cleaner too. A tap over the dust extractor hood will suck the sheet clean ready for more work. Abranet® was been developed for sanding all woods and composite materials.

CKK-PML-BX12

Pony Mid-Lock Damscus Folder Kit CKK-PML-BX12

130.00

The Pony Mid-lock damascus folding knife kit is designed to be as easy as it gets for building a truly high-line pocket knife. This damascus pocket knife kit model is a Mid-lock design and already has the handle scales pre-attached to their stainless liners by 2-part, 2-ton adhesive. The scales are already expertly finished to the outer edges of the stainless steel liners and little more than light sanding is needed to finish the handle work to a completed state. This helps the beginner to achieve a pro-level finish with little or no experience, tools or shop space. This damascus folding knife kit is a magnificent beginner's model, especially for those who want more than a screw-together challenge.

The damascus blade on this model is 2" inches long and is pre-ground, etched and sharpened. The overall length of the Pony Mid-lock is 5" inches and the length when closed is 3" inches. This folder knife kit comes with full pin hardware, including nickel-silver liner pins for easy of assembly. The position of the lock on this model is excellent for a working pocket knife, even though it has a very dressy finish.
