Each one is individually hand forged
Forge to finish
Everything but the final bevels are hand forged into place
After being a fan of Cimbrer bushcraft for many years I was delighted to see that Tom was looking for a knife maker for his seax design. After a discussion with him about what he wanted and going over the designs I made a couple of prototypes and got him to approve them before we offered them up for sale here.
The blades are forged from 80crv2 steel and feature a full tang construction, the oak handle is shaped by hand and then attached with brass pins.
A leather sheath can be ordered which is made specifically for that knife and they are all hand cut and hand stitched.
Each one is hand forged and finished all by hand using British materials. The oak comes from the Kent and Surrey border whilst the leather for the sheaths comes from the Midlands, all steel is also rolled in the UK.
CURRENT LEAD TIME 4 WEEKS FOR SHEATHS
A traditional Scottish knife which is very close to my heart, I have given a slightly more modern take to this classic design but it retains all of its functionality, through tangs with capped wood lies at the heart of the design with a strong stout blade and sleek file work its easy to see why this design has stood the test of time,
I tend to mirror finish mine and use one of four exotic woods (African blackwood, Indian ebony, Indian rosewood, Chacate preto) but the heart and soul of the knife is still made with the same functionality in mind.
Each handle is turned on a lathe and then shaped to the knife using a rasp and sand paper to get a smooth ergonomic feel that sits comfortably in the hand,
I always keep my measurements the same with a 12cm blade and a 11cm handle, each knife also comes with a hand cut and stitched sheath.
Made with one of my favourite woods, chacate preto this Sgian dubh features a horn bolster and brass buttcap.
The dual tones of the ebony really set this piece apart, the deep line of the ebony is mirrored on both sides and complemented by the buffalo horn bolster and buttcap to really make the grain pop.
