The wood handle you see in the photo may not be the exact color and figure pattern you receive. Photo may not be actual size, please refer to given dimensions.
      Our blades have a near mirror finish. This alows the blade move through the wood smoothly. There may be tooling marks still on the blade which do not affect the performance of the knife.

  • Knife Handle Length: Depending on the style you choose, the handles are approximately 4 - 5 1/4" in length. This does vary due to the fact that all the handles are handmade. There may be slight variations in the size and shape.
  • Handle Material: Each standard knife receives a nice piece of hardwood. Typically we use black walnut or ash. The wood shown in the photo may not be the same handle material you receive.
  • Blade Material: Our wood carving knives are individually forged from W1 tool steel, the benefit of this kind of steel is that it produces a nice hardness that can be easily sharpened and stay sharp for a long time.
  • Sustainability: All the wood that we use to produce our handles comes from local sources. Most of it was destined for the wood chipper.
