Compare

A style of knife made famous by Ray Mears, this sturdy outdoor survival knife is hand made from 01 Carbon Tool Steel hardened to Rockwell 56/58. The edge is then ground through rather than whetted, to achieve a superbly sharp cutting edge. With a striking, tough Ironwood haft and lanyard hole, each knife is supplied with high quality leather sheath and Swedish Fire Steel. The blade is 4.5mm thick and the knife has an overall length 22cms (8.5”), the perfect combination of strength, weight and balance. The knife weighs approx. 240gm (c 7.5 ounces). The Swedish military Fire Steel produces sparks of 3000 C when struck with the back of the knife and is good for some 12,000 strikes.

Product Description

The Arthur Wright family has been making high quality pocket knives in Sheffield since just after the Second World War. All the knives are still individually hand crafted by apprenticed Sheffield Cutlers, using methods passed down from generation to generation. Every process is completed in-house, from blanking out the blades and springs, hardening and tempering, assembly, grinding and glazing – right up to the final polishing of the steel.
