BUSHCRAFT KNIVES FOR SALE -

SOLD ALAN WOOD. "WOODLORE PROFILE".

A lovely version of this classic Bushcraft knife from Alan, this time made from 3mm 01 tool steel, giving all the advantages of the standard 4mm knives but with enhanced slicing ability for food prep. The handle is Gold 'Bird's Eye' Maple with brass fittings. Blade: 4-1/4 inches. Oal: 8-3/4 inches. Complete with a brown leather belt sheath with stamped logo.

Brand new from Maker. 

ALAN WOOD. "WOODLORE PROFILE".

The classic Bushcraft knife from the original Maker. Alan has given this a different 'twist' by 'ageing' the 01 carbon steel blade with cold blue (a head start for a patina !) Coupled with a black micarta handle for an added effect. Complete with what Alan calls his 'Scout Sheath' for a horizontal ambidextrous belt carry.

Brand new from Maker. £325 inc. UK p&p.

BEN & LOIS ORFORD. "NORDIC CARVER".

A slightly smaller version of Ben's superb axe. Made from 01 carbon steel with black G10 with green liners & brass fittings. Cutting edge: 4-1/2 inches across. Handle:10-1/2 inches. Complete with a black leather cover by Lois. Mint, unused condition. £375 inc. UK p&p.

SOLD JACKLORE. "WISP".

Lovely work from this much sought after Maker.

Mint, unused condition. £185 inc. UK p&p.

SOLD FALLKNIVEN. SWEDEN. "F1-x".

A customised version of this highly regarded knife. I don't know who did the actual work but they have taken a 'basic' Fallkniven model (but made with superb, Elmax, steel) and re-handled it in Desert Ironwood, with black liners and mosaic pins. All done to a very high standard. Complete with a well made leather 'dangler' sheath, this is now a knife anyone would be proud to own and take out into the woods. Blade: 4 inches. Oal: 8-3/4 inches.  Excellent, unused condition.

SOLD RAY MEARS/SWC. "WOODLORE PRO".

Has to be the rarest of all the Ray Mears knives (not including the RM/AW Instructor Knives, which were not available to the public) as Steve only managed to make around 60-70 before his untimely passing. Although now offered for sale on the Woodlore website made by Emberleaf, this is the original !

Mint, unused condition & Full Set. £POA.

SOLD CASSTROM. SWEDEN. "FOREST KNIFE -No 10".

A very practical and usable knife from Casstrom, in the superb 14C28V steel with a Curly Birch handle. This particular example has a Flat Grind.

Mint, as new condition. 

SOLD CASSTROM. SWEDEN. "LARS FALT Slip Joint".

Although obviously a folder, I felt this would more at home in the BUSHCRAFT section. A very handy and useful knife to carry when a larger fixed blade may not be suitable or allowed. As the blade does not lock - and is sub 3" - this is an ideal solution for those who like to have a knife  when out in the countryside.

Mint, as new condition. 

SOLD ALAN WOOD. "TIMBERWOLF".

Please email for details. 01 tool steel blade.

Brand new from Maker.

ALAN WOOD. "MORA STYLE WHITTLER".

Please email for details.

New from Maker. £300 inc. UK p&p.

SOLD WILDERWAYS. UK. "WILDER".

Until I was sent his knife, I was unaware of Francis Lawrence and his superb knives. The workmanship is very good indeed and the ergonomics of the handle makes this one of the most comfortable using knives I have held. This what Francis had to say about his Wilder model on his website - "designed as an all round utility knife ideal for outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking, canoeing, food prep while on the trail, etc. 

Blade: 3mm AEL-B Flat grind with secondary bevel. 95mm. Oal: 205mm. Handle white G10 with red & white liner. S/steel Loveless bolts.

Complete with Kydex sheath and leather sheath (which was an optional extra purchase). This model may have been discontinued as it is no longer shown on his website. Apart from some scratches near the blade's tip, possibly from the kydex(?) the knife is in mint condition.

Nr. Mint condition. 

ESEE USA. "GIBSON AXE".

A superb working hatchet that has been 'customised' by the previous owner with a mirror polish to the 1095 steel, at a cost of £80 by Gemini Bespoke Knives. (The mirror finish could be useful as a signalling aid in a survival situation, as well as helping to retard corrosion).

Because of the new surface finish, all Esee branding has been lost. 

Mint, unused condition. New price: £210 inc. UK p&p.

SOLD TP KNIVES. "EXPLORER".

This could possibly be the most well crafted Bushcraft knife I have seen - and I've seen a lot ! It almost borders on being a 'Sculpture', the handle is so well refined but still extremely comfortable to hold. The blade is double tempered 01 carbon steel (what else) with the bevel having a mirror polish. The handle is stabilised Oregon Maple Burl, with mosaic pins. This knife will certainly give that 'Pride of Ownership' feeling and could actually be just too nice to take out and use - and that would be a crime !

Mint, unused condition. 

TOPS KNIVES. USA. "FIELDCRAFT - Brothers of Bushcaft".

please email for details,

Mint, unused condition.  NEW PRICE: £170 inc. UK p&p.

ONTARIO KNIFE CO. USA. "SK-5 BLACK BIRD".

Complete with sheath & box ( which shows storage marks )

As new condition. NEW PRICE: £140 inc. UK p&p.

SOLD EDDIE McGEE. "NO NEED TO DIE".

Before Ray, there was Lofty (Wiseman) and this chap Eddie McGee, an expert in survival training. First published in 1978 ( this is the 1986 reprint in paperback ) the information is still 1st class - although some may find the illustrations a little amatuerish ? 

Very good condition. 

SOLD RAYMOND MEARS. "The SURVIVAL HANDBOOK - 1990".

The first book written by Ray - when he was still known as Raymond- in 1990 (this book was reprinted in 1994). An fascinating insight into what was to follow in the years ahead. Particularly interesting is the chapter on Cutting Tools where you can clearly see Ray's thoughts on his 'ideal' knife, which were just waiting for his fortuitous meeting with Knifemaker Alan Wood - and a Legend to be born ! 

Excellent condition. £20 plus UK p&p
