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.

Pony Mid-Lock Damscus Folder Kit

CKK-PML-BX21

Pony Mid-Lock Damscus Folder Kit CKK-PML-BX21

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.

Black Bog Oak Standard

TL-BBO BX-F

Black Bog Oak Standard TL-BBO BX-F

15.00

Size 125mm x 40mm x 28mm.

Botanical name: Quercus robur

Origin: England

Dryness: Kiln dried
The picture shown is lighter than the stock. Inky black with a significantly higher density and hardness than ordinary oak, bog oak was created when prehistoric forests were submerged under water and silt in anaerobic conditions thousands of years ago. This stock has been carbon dated and is at least 3300 years old.

The black colour is a chemical reaction between the tannin in the oak and ferrous compounds in the water.

Bog oak is one of the most difficult woods to dry. A very large percentage of material is lost in the drying process and this largely explains the price.
