The Re-enforcer is forged from a chunk of used rebar (reinforcing bar). This carbon steel was originally used for reinforcing concrete in building applications. Now, the tool has been given a second life, and a new chance as a rugged hand tool. The texture of the rebar is still evident in the integrated handle. The steel has been annealed, shaped, hardened, and tempered to give the blade incredible durability as a working tool. The blade has also been force-etched to create a patina on the steel's surface, which helps prevent further corrosion over time.
The knife comes with a custom leather sheath made from the scraps of a horse saddle. The sheath is created from a single piece of leather - which has been riveted together, partially painted with black acrylic paint, waxed, and stitched by hand with waxed linen.
