Crook (ebony)

$260.00 Sold Out

This blade is made from a scrap piece of O1 tool steel, a high-carbon steel used in the making of many modern day tools.

The blade boasts a full-tang construction. The steel has been 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, which helps prevent further corrosion of the steel over time. The backbone of this knife curves naturally while tucking the handle into the palm, creating a comfortably ergonomic fit.

The handle is made from a piece of Ebony wood which was originally the neck of an old violin. Imagine the sounds that resonated through this wood grain! The handle has been pinned to the blade with steel pins – one of which is hollow, with a inner diameter of 1/4”.

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, waxed, and stitched by hand with waxed linen.
