Custom made Scandi Forest knife
The blade for this knife is made from ThyssenKrupp 80CrV2 High Carbon Steel. This steel can retain its edge for a long time. After the blade is forged it is grinded by hand to the smoother shape and then heat treated and annealed to Rockwell 61 (HRC) hardness. After hardening the blade is slightly polished and sharpened to razor sharpness. The handle for this knife is hand shaped out of a block of stabilized Cocobolo wood. It is oiled with a pure tung nut oil and afterwards waxed with beeswax.
Leather sheath is wet formed to fit each knife individually. The leather material is manufactured in a local tannery using the same methods and techniques that were used 100 years ago. Each sheath is custom made and hand stitched using saddle stitch and waxed linen thread. Each knife sheath is individually custom dyed with Fiebings professional oil dyes. Afterwards, the sheath is waxed with palm leaf wax and beeswax. To protect against moisture it is finished using acrylic leather sheen.
