The handle is 12cm long and available in classic Oak, dark Bubinga hardwood, green linen Micarta laminate or Curly Birch. Between the handle scales and steel are black liners to increase durability over time . The handle is secured with strong brass rivets which also gives them great classic look. The wood has been treated with a traditional Scandinavian linseed mixture.
The knife comes with a very sturdy cognac brown knife sheath (black for the green micarta version) made from 3mm thick vegetable tanned leather. The sheaths have an extra wide belt loop, an opening in the bottom for liquid, and a hole for a lanyard strap.
ABOUT THE STEEL:
O2 HIGH CARBON TOOL STEEL
Böhler Tool Steel K720 (O2) is a very tough and strong oil hardened high carbon tool steel. The focus of the steel is toughness and edge stability. The chemical composition allows it to be hardened to a high degree whilst maintaining ductility and toughness. This means the blade holds its edge for longer at the same time as it is resistant to chipping and cracking under heavy use. This steel also has a very fine structure making it easy to sharpen and achieve a razor sharp edge with. Whilst easy to sharpen, the low chromium content means it will tarnish if left wet and it must therefore be wiped after use and protected by oil or wax when put away for storage if you want to avoid tarnish building up.
Steel analysis: C. 0.9%, Si. 0.25%, Mn. 2.0%, Cr. 0.35% V. 0.1% (HRC 58-60)
Terms – Purchase of Knives and Blades
All sales are subject exclusively and wholly to our Terms and Conditions of Sale. The use of this website is subject to our Terms and Conditions. By viewing our website, or by placing an order with us, you warrant that you agree fully with these terms …
THE SALE OF KNIVES AND BLADES
In the United Kingdom it is an offense for any person under the age of 18 years to purchase a knife, or attempt to purchase a knife. We shall only supply knives, blades and related equipment to customers over the age of 18 years. This has always been our policy, whether or not it is the law. The sale of knives is regulated by the Laws of England, and subject exclusively to our Terms & Conditions of Sale.
We reserve the right to refuse a sale if we have reasonable cause to believe that the prospective customer is below the age of 18 years, or if we believe that the supply of goods to the prospective customer may infringe the Laws of England or present an unacceptable and reasonably indentifiable potential risk to the safety of others.
The law requires that we take every reasonable precaution to ensure that knives are not sold to persons under the age of 18 years. We reserve the right to use any legal method open to us to establish a genuine age of potential customers in accordance with, and compliance of, the Offensive Weapons Act 1996. This may include a search of publicly available information, such as the Electoral Roll or Directory Enquiries. The results of any such search will be held in the strictest of confidence solely for the purpose of ensuring the validity of age declarations. We will not hold or store in any medium the results of any such search, merely holding an indication on our records that a search has been made for the purposes of age validation.
In the event that we are unable to identify the genuine age of a potential customer we may request additional information from you. Often, this information can be supplied online in a very informal and non invasive manner. However, on occasions we may need to request physical proof such as a copy of a passport or driving license. This information will be held in the strictest of confidence solely for the purpose of ensuring the validity of age declarations.
