Sale pending ALAN WOOD. "MY BUSH".
A super example of Alan work, fitted out in white Micarta (Tufnol) with red liners and s/s fittings. The steel is 12c27. A combination that will handle anything that nature's worst elements can throw at it !
Complete with black leather Bushcraft sheath with fire steel holder.
Mint, unused condition. £395 inc. UK p&p.
SOLD ALAN WOOD. "MY BUSH-2".
The "My Bush" model is Alan's own variation on the classic Woodlore, where he has changed the handle shape slightly ( the blade is still the same as the Woodlore ). The 'Mark 2' version - which Alan introduced a few months ago - has a 'finger cut-out' but is otherwise unchanged from the original My Bush.The steel is 12c27 and the handle is Bubinga (African Rosewood) with red liners. Blade: 4-3/8 inches and oal: 9 inches.
The knife comes in a dark brown leather Bushcraft sheath with a matching Bubinga fire steel. Brand new from Maker. POA.
SOLD ALAN WOOD. "MY BUSH-2".
SOLD ROB BAYLEY. "COMPACT RAVEN - PROTOTYPE".
A super Collector piece, this is the first of this model having being made in 2008. Complete with 'rock solid' provenance supplied by Rob, this knife could be a Star of a Collection - but still would be a great user. Having recently returned from Rob, who gave it a "fluff & buff", this knife now looks in mint condition after seeing light use by the previous owner.
Excellent condition. POA.
SOLD JACKLORE. UK. "WASP".
A 'hard to come by' Neck Knife by this master of Bushcraft Knives.
This knife has been lightly used - and sharpened - by the previous owner but is a great chance to own one of Sandy's knives without the wait.
Excellent condition. £195 inc. UK p&p
LON HUMPHREY. USA. " Brute de Forge KEPHART".
Lon has made a name for himself forging the "old fashioned way" and this classic knife of Horace Kephart fame is a great example. A 'no frills' knife, this is possibly closer in reality to what Horace himself would have used - apart from the black micarta handle - having his made by a country blacksmith. Horace never found reason to complain and you may well feel the same. Blade: 4-1/2". oal: 9". The steel is 3/16th stock 1095 carbon. The knife has been lightly used. Complete with original sheath.
Very good condition. £175 inc. UK p&p
ALAN WOOD. "ARTIC FOX".
Brand new from Maker. please email for details. £325 inc. UK p&p.
SOLD DOZIER KNIVES.USA. "KEPHART".
A model not often seen from the Dozier Workshop but for Lovers of Classic Bushcraft - before Ray came along - this Kephart model will 'tick a lot of boxes'. Made from D2 Tool steel, with Bob Dozier's famous 'Heat treat', and a red micarta handle for good visibility, who wouldn't want to take this out into the woods ( when this Coronavirus 'Lock Down' is finished ! ). Blade: 1/8" thickness - 4-1/4" length. Oal: 9". Complete with a black kydex sheath. Mint, unused cond.
SOLD RISTO MIKKONEN. FINLAND. "PUUKKO 90 - RWL34".
please email for details. NEW PRICE; £195 inc. UK p&p.
SOLD ALAN WOOD. "NESSMUK".
SOLD ALAN WOOD. "WOODLORE PROFILE".
SOLD RAY MEARS/ALAN WOOD. "WOODLORE".
Super example of this Iconic knife.
SOLD R. Harrington - BISON BUSHCRAFT. "BUSHCRAFT Model".
A really lovely knife made by Roger Harrington, who runs his well established and acclaimed Bison Bushcraft School. Besides being well versed in all things 'Bushcraft', Roger is also an excellent knifemaker and this is an earlier knife by him and is, in fact, the very first Damascus knife he ever made ! Made approx. 2003-2006, Roger has used a "Raindrop" pattern Damascus made by Delbert Eally, of the USA and handled the knife in Cherry wood, with brass bolts.
Roger tells me a similar knife at today's prices would be a minimum of £800 ! This is one of the sweetest Bushcraft knives I have handled.
Blade: 3-3/8" Oal: 7-3/4". Complete with Roger's trademark sheath, with matching Firesteel. This knife has seen very little use.
SOLD RAY MEARS/WILKINSON SWORD. "WOODLORE KNIFE".
As I'm sure is common knowledge by now, these knives were made for Ray by Wilkinson Sword to try and meet the unprecedented demand for the hand crafted Woodlore knife made by Alan Wood. They were made in relatively large quantities until Wilkinson Sword ceased trading, where upon they became sought after themselves, both as Collector pieces and users. This particular example has seen hardly any use (it shows a few light scratches on the blade) - but has been expertly mirror polished on the blade flats and bevel ( the grinds and logos are still crisp and clear ).
Complete with a brown leather L/H sheath made by Alan Wood.
AS Custom Knives. Poland. "Puukko".
Another lovely knife I picked up at the recent Belgium Knife Show from Andrew, a Polish maker new to me. However, the quality of his work as shown in this knife is excellent. The knife is very light, having a handle of Birch with a Reindeer spacer and is also very comfortable in the hand, as the best made Puukkos are. Having a Flat grind blade of premium RWL34 stainless is the icing on the cake! Complete with a very well made leather sheath. Blade: 3-3/4". Oal: 8-1/2".
Brand new from maker. £325 inc. UK p&p
TIMBERLINE KNIVES. USA. "SURVIVAL HUNTER - 1980's".
Not to be confused with the modern Timberline 'Factory' knives, this 'Golden Oldie' is Custom all the way from the original Timberline knives. Named as Blade Magazine Knife of the Year in 1984, this is the earlier version with the hex bolts ( later versions had a screw slot, which could be undone with a Dime coin - I guess losing the Allen key meant you were, well, screwed !! ). This knife was made when the Rambo Hollow handle survival knives were all the rage and everyone was making their version. The three Guys at Timberline - Hardenbrook, Neeley & Sanders took a different approach to everyone else and kept a full tang, with all the "compass, fishing line, snares, etc." in the hollowed out micarta scales. The Allen key and Fire Steel are kept in the rear of the sheath. These knives are extremely well made and to find one in this unused condition is rare. Although no doubt a collector's item, this will work just as well as it was intended back when Jim Hardenbrook was still alive.
Blade: 3-1/2". Oal: 7-3/4". Whoever buys this will not be disappointed.
Mint, unused condition. NEW PRICE: £350 inc. UK p&p
BEN & LOIS ORFORD. "TRAPPER".
Lovely knife from the skilled hands of Ben & Lois.
Mint, unused condition, complete with box & papers. £280 inc. UK p&p.
HELLE "TEMAGAMI- laminated s/steel".
Brand new & unused. £125 inc. UK p&p.
SOLD BRUSLETTO. NORWAY. "TROLL-KNIVEN".
An unused version of this knife from this long established Norwegian Knife making firm, based in Geilo. I believe this particular model has now been discontinued. With a carbon steel blade and most of the work being done by hand, it would be a great user as well as a collector piece. Complete with an embossed leather sheath, made in the classic Scandinavian style. Blade: 3-1/4". Oal: 7-1/2".
Mint, unused condtion.
For those of you who are unaware, NOMAD KNIVES is run by a family friend, John, who helped Steve (SWC) in his workshop. Steve's untimely passing left a lot of unfinished knives and blade blanks lying around the workshop and with the excellent skills he learnt from his time spent with Steve, John ( who with Steve's Mother blessing, inherited his Workshop ) is now completing these knives with the proceeds going towards Steve's Mother living costs.
Both of these knives are 01 hardened steel (Rc58) blanks ground by Steve - one is the classic 'Woodlore' Bushcraft ( possibly intially destined for Ray Mears ? ) and the other is Steve's own 30 year Anniversay design. John has finished both of these to a very high standard and also furnished leather sheaths for them.
SOLD RM Bushcraft design - Blade: 4-1/4" Oal: 8-3/4". Tambootie wood with black liners. Brass bolts. Brown leather pouch sheath.
Mint, unused condition. £300
SOLD SWC Anniversary Design - Blade: 4-1/4" Oal: 8-3/4". Lignium Vitae wood with black & red liners. Brass bolts. Dark brown leather 'Calvary Flap' sheath, with firesteel holder.
Mint, unused condition. £350 inc UK p&p
SOLD SWC/R.MEARS. "IROKO Wood BUSHCRAFT".
Now becoming harder to find, this is the first collaboration between Steven Wade Cox and Ray Mears when they used Iroko wood for the handles. This wood was salvaged from a demolished church and so was of a finite supply and eventually all used up ( Steve and Ray then moved on to using English Oak for the handle material ).
This knife, I'm led to believe, was found in Steve's workshop after his passing and is in unused condition, although it shows a few light blemishes. As such, it does not have a Woodlore sheath (or box) but one made by Steve. A rare chance to own a sought after model, that was made in a limited number.
SOLD SWC KNIVES (DECEASED). "INTEGER".
I have been informed by a very knowledgable Collector that this 'Integer' model was the latest Bushcraft design made by Steve Wade Cox before his untimely passing. As such, he did not make many of these knives making it a rare beast indeed. For those of you who only know of Steve through his work with Ray Mears, this is a chance to own ( and use ? ) a knife made by someone who was a master of his craft and had an equally strong following for his own designs, as well as those made in conjunction with Ray Mears. Complete with original brown leather sheath.
Excellent, unused condition. £450 inc. UK p&p
SOLD ALAN WOOD. "WOODLORE PROFILE".
A rare "Flat Grind" version of the classic Woodlore knife. I have not seen many flat ground examples of Bushcraft knives by Alan but I know there are some users who like the more 'all-round' cutting & slicing ability this grind offers over the standard 'Scandi Grind'. For those who do - or would like to try something different - then this superb offering in Green/Brown stabilised Maple and premium RWL34 steel will not disappoint !
Complete with a brown leather 'swivel' sheath, with logo.
Brand new from maker.
SOLD RAY MEARS/JULIUS PETTERSSON. "25yr. Anniversay Model".
Not much to say about these knives except they were extremely popular and sold out immediately upon release. Hand forged by Swedish knife maker and good friend of Ray's, Julius Pettersson, these were made to celebrate 25 years of the company, Woodlore Limited. Made in a limited number of only 250, they are now much sought after and I am pleased to offer this example for sale.
Mint, unused condition, with box & papers.
SOLD ROD GARCIA. "SKOOKUM BUSH TOOL".
SOLD Stephen Wade Cox. "30yr. Anniversary Model".
Chosen by Ray Mears - who held him in high esteem - to make his Bushcraft model, it is easy to forget that the late Steve Wade Cox had been an accomplised maker in his own right for many years - in fact, 30years! To celebrate this fact, Steve made a very limited edition of 30 numbered knives based on his very first knife. These extremely well made knives proved to be very popular and quickly sold out.
I have now acquired another of these very capable Bushcraft knives or, since Steve sadly passing away, a very desirable Collector's item.
Mint, unused condition. £POR
SOLD ALAN WOOD. "WHITTLER".
A lovely knife from Alan, very much in the spirit of classic Swedish Mora but much improved with a full tang, rather than the traditional stick tang. Made in 01 carbon steel, with a very attractive 'antique ivory' Micarta handle with s/steel fittings. Blade: 3-3/4". Oal: 7-3/4". Complete with simple brown leather pouch sheath.
Commission sale. Mint, as new condition.
ALAN WOOD. "25yr. Anniversary Knives".
What an opportunity ! I recently acquired No.19 from Alan's Set of 25 Anniversary knives and have decided to also release from my own Collection the Prototype for this series of knives. This is the original knife Alan designed ( and tested ) before going ahead and making the small run of knives he named Pioneer, to celebrate his 25 years as a full time Knifemaker. He has since made other Pioneer knives but these are not to be confused with the originals, marked "Pioneer XXV-A2".
SOLD PIONEER - PROTOTYPE. Mint condition. Price on request
SOLD PIONEER - 19/25. Mint condition. Price on request
SOLD PALL KRISTJANSSON. ICELAND.
I have to confess to not having heard of this Maker before, but a little research shows that he is extremely well revered in his native Iceland where he is actually listed on Tourist Information pamphlets as a 'must see' attraction. A knifemaker of 30 years standing, you can see his experience in this lovely knife as it has everything you need and nothing that you don't ! Made from a 3-layer laminated carbon blade and a handle of Reindeer, sandwiched between Buffalo horn, with a simple scrimshaw to add a little touch of class. As typical with this style of knife it comes complete with a very snug fitting sheath. All in all, a lovely package. Blade: 2-3/4" Oal: 7-1/8".
Mint, unused condition.
SOLD ALAN WOOD "ARTIC FOX".
Another example of this very popular Bushcraft knife from Alan. This is a more 'deluxe' version with a polished Stag handle, set off by blue liners and brass bolts. ( these Bushcraft knives handled in stag are quite rare as suitable stag is hard for Alan to source ). The blade has also been given a very nice hand rubbed finish, which again is not often seen on this model. Complete with a brown leather pouch sheath, with Alan's logo. Altogether a superb package.
SOLD NORMARK "FISKARS - FINLAND. 1967"
A vintage knife from 1967, when the choice of knives was nowhere near as great as today. These early Normarks however, garnered high praise for their edgeholding and razor sharpness and I have had customers who say they were the best knives they ever had !
Blade: 4 3/4" stainless. Oal: 9 1/4". Black "plastic" handle with brass fittings ( the guard shows some very light tarnish). Brown leather swivel sheath. Virtually as new condition !
SOLD DON REHMKE : "Bow Drill Survival Knife".
An American Maker who's work is rarely seen here in the UK, Don is no longer accepting new orders due to his backlog. This is his version of a survival knife, with a 4.5" blade of blued 01 steel (9.5" oal). The blade has a heavy duty tip for cutting a hole in a fireboard, while the green micarta scales has a divot to allow the handle to act as a bearing block for a bow drill. The kydex sheath has been designed to be held comfortably when used with a bow drill. All in all, a very well thought out design. The sheath also has a high quality shoulder strap, to allow another carry option.
Pre-owned but in "As New-unused" condition.
ALAN WOOD "TAMARACK".
This Bushcraft model is based on the exclusive design knife that Alan once made for Tamarack Outdoors, some years ago. Unfortunately, because of his extremely busy schedule, Alan could not supply Tamarack with these knives on a regular basis and as a result, these knives are quite scarce. However, Alan did recently make for them a 10yr. Anniversay model, in a limited edition of 10 numbered knives. These knives were a slightly scaled down version of the original design. I have acquired direct from Alan, three examples of a standard (non-numbered) version of this design. All are made from 1/8" 01 carbon steel, with a blade length of 3 3/4" and oal. of 8".
This is a great design which will take care of most of your Bushcraft needs, with the bonus of having a thin enough blade for food prep.

SOLD TOPS KNIVES "TOM BROWN TRACKER" . please email for spec. As New. £200 inc. UK p&p.
SOLD ALAN WOOD. "WOODCRAFT" An absolutely stunning version by Alan of the legendary Woodcraft knife, as designed by Horace Kephart - writer of the classic book "Camping & Woodcraft" ( a book that is a "must read" to anyone interested in Bushcraft ). This knife is an unique one-off and may have been made as a special request of the previous owner or simply made by Alan for his own satifaction, as I know he is very keen on camping/bushcraft himself. As per the original spec, the blade is 4 1/2" and flat ground thin making it a superb slicer. The differance being, Alan has made the blade from stainless damascus (Damasteel), one of the very best steels in the world - a luxury not available to dear ol' Horace ! Leather stacked handle with a stag butt cap, n/s fittings complete the package. An extremely rare knife from Alan.
SOLD Alan Wood. PUUKKO. This is the first ( and only ) Puukko I have seen from Alan and what a beauty - the prettiest knife I have seen from Alan !
Better known for the full tang style of "Scandi" knife, Alan has gone down the traditional route with a Curly Birch handle, brass furniture and set off with a mammoth ivory spacer over the stick tang. The 3 1/2" blade is a stunning piece of damasteel ( stainless damascus ) with a small section of rope filework on the spine, for a thumb grip. Oal is 7 1/2". The sheath, which is well made, has not been made by Alan. This knife is out of my own collection and I know I will regret selling it.
