I sketched up this design for a camp knife somewhat inspired by the traditional canadian belt knife a couple months ago and ground it out of some .130" 440C stainless Crucible steel. I got it back from heat treat a perfect 59HRC thanks to trugritinc and the quality work of Jeff Mutz. Now that the Christmas rush is nearing a close I can start to think about some of these old projects again. I love the feel of this knife and can't wait to feel it with a good handle, I just have to decide what would go well with this one!
The knife has long been an essential tool for the outdoorsman and man kind in general. The outdoors enthusiast would never be caught without it. When you step out the door, it is the first tool in your pack or pocket, it is a sort of companion on all your great adventures. At Hook Knives we believe that companion aught to be a little part of you, a part of who you are. So let us make your dream knife to fit you.
