Stock & Wait Time: The order books for the custom Tradesman in 1/8" O1 steel are open as of July 31st, 2022. The wait is approximately 2-3 weeks +/-
- We're opening the order books for a small run of 8 Tradesman orders. Options are listed below.
- Given there are only 8 slots the wait could be as short as a few days, but may take over two weeks if the customer chooses a handle material which isn't in stock. As always, please allow some flexibility with the wait time.
- Matching firesteels might be shipped separately at a later date.
- After purchasing the knife I'll contact you via email or text and confirm specifications. You can make last-minute changes if needed. If we're good to go, we'll begin the creation of your order. Each order will be photographed and shown on our Instagram & Facebook pages (unless you request us not to).
The Tradesman is a bushcraft knife inspired by the fur-trade knives brought to North America by it's early explorers. This knife has a relatively thin and constantly upward-curving edge, making it an excellent slicer. This is essentially a camp kitchen knife and bushcraft knife hybrid, excelling at anything from preparing a stew, carving a spoon or building a shelter.
Note: The standard handle contour is coke-bottle, but I can do the triple-swell shape if requested.
