Availble now is a gorgeous pippy English Elm handle knife with English Yew trim, a English oak peg and also brass fitting in the shaft.
Blade: Hewn & Hone 6.3mm round tang, approx 60 x 2mm, bearing steel.
Note: This blade is forged by and heat treated by Nic Westermann, the grinding is done by Hewn & Hone. The blade is forged from 1/4″ bearing steel rod- this makes fitting a handle very easy and a round tang and also adds rigidity, the blade is 2mm thick at the spine with distal taper towards the tip.This small sloyd has a compound grind on the flats, this means that the 25 degree edge bevel is very short, allowing the blade to turn in a concave cut very easily, they are excellent for finishing difficult areas of a spoon, especially the neck.
The tips are very fine and these blades should not be used for prying to any degree.
The leather has all been stamped by hand with the Ash & Axe and Norfolk, England brands using handcrafted brass stamps made in England.
This knife is only available to purchase if you are 18+. Proof of age ID which also matches the delivery address must be provided on purchase before the item can be dispatched. For more information on knife laws in the UK, please visit this page.
