One of our first prototypes of a new sloyd knife that we are developing. It is a little thicker steel than most sloyds on the market at 3.5mm, and with a 25 degree grind angle that gives it a very wide flat bevel. We find this makes it superb for creating long smooth planing cuts, something that many carvers struggle with. This first batch of samples are on some “slight second” handles, and are in some “slight second” sheaths to keep them safe in the post
The steel is the same high alloy steel we use for our hook knives with 1.55% carbon, 12% chrome along with molybdenum and vanadium, it goes through the same rigorous professional heat treat process followed by cryogenic treatment. It should hold an edge for a very long time.
Blade length: 65mm / 2.5″
Handle length: 140mm / 5.5″
