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.

NEW Style Hunters Blade (Tamahagane)

HB-T-LEG-BX11

NEW Style Hunters Blade (Tamahagane) HB-T-LEG-BX11

275.00

Tamahagane material

Blade length: 10.5cm

Width 3cm

Thickness: 2.5mm

Handle:10.5cm

The holes will accept Corby Bolts or 5mm Rod

CARE: Maintenance is absolutely essential the blade must be cleaned and dried directly after use. The edge will last much longer than anything you have ever experienced

This will make up into a beautiful knife.

Tamahagane is a type of steel made in the Japanese tradition. The word tama means "precious". The word hagane means "steel" Tamahagane is used to make Japanese swords, knives, and other kinds of tools.
The carbon content of the majority of analysed Japanese swords historically lies between 0.5-0.7 mass%; however, the range extends up to 1.5%

Tamahagane is made of an iron sand (satetsu) found in Shimane, Japan. There are two main types of iron sands: akame satetsu and masa satetsu. Akame is lower quality, masa is better quality. The 'murage' decides the amount of the mixing parts. Depending on the desired result, the murage mixes one or more types of sands.
The iron sand is put in a tatara, a clay tub furnace. The clay tub measures about 4 feet (1.2 m) tall, 12 feet (3.7 m) long and 4 feet (1.2 m) wide. The tub is dried and heated to about 1,000 °C (1800 °F). Then, it is mixed with charcoal to add carbon to the steel so it can be hardened.
The process of making Tamahagane continues for 36-72 hours (a day and a half to three days), depending on how many people work and how much metal is to be obtained. Within an hour of smelting, the iron sand sinks to the bottom, called the bed of fire, in which it will be assessed by colour on whether it became Tamahagane. The iron sand is added every ten minutes, and the mixture is frequently turned over. After the Tamahagane is finished, the clay tub is broken and the steel is removed. The best steel is on the edges of metal block; in this area, the oxidation process is stronger. The quality of Tamahagane is determined by its colour: bright silver pieces are very good for making blades.
