This was the last custom outdoor knife that was ordered before my books closed two years ago so I decided to make this one a bit special!
The 4" blade was made from Sheffield Silver Fox 100, a steel made here in Sheffield, which is a high carbon stainless that has all the benefits of a carbon steel but without the rust. It's strong, holds a great edge and is easy to sharpen.
I've managed to combine many of my latest methods with one of my original knife designs - the Wilderness 5. Out of the 12 outdoor knives I used to make this one was always the most popular.
I was happy to hear that the first project this knife will make is going to be a wooden spreading knife from a piece of local green wood.
