BUSHCRAFT KNIVES FOR SALE -

ON HOLD RM/SWC. "WOODLORE PRO".

Details added asap.

Mint, unused condition. £POA.

LOURENS PRINSLOO. S/AFRICA. "LL FOLDER".

A lovely little folder that, I feel, would make a superb 'Neck Knife' (if the buyer wanted to make a leather sheath). Lourens workmanship is exemplary and this knife would certainly give that 'Pride of Ownership' feeling. The 'stubby' clip point blade has a hand rubbed finish and mirror polished spine, with a positive lock-up courtesy of the Titanium liners.

The red/black carbon fibre scales have a smooth finish (despite the impression given in my photo) and the knife feels very comforable in the hand, despite the 3-finger grip. Blade: 2 inches. Closed: 3 inches.

Brand new from Maker. £275 inc. UK p&p.

SOLD RAY MEARS/EMBERLEAF. "WOODLORE PRO".

A Woodlore Pro from Emberleaf that has been handled in Moose Antler, making it very rare indeed. This knife is from the first batch of knives the lads made after taking over the contract following SWC's untimely passing and according to Dean & Joel maybe the only one like it, making it totally unique !

Mint, unused condition, with sheath, box, etc.

ROB BAYLEY. "S4".

2010 example of this classic knife. Beat the wait !

Nr. Mint condition. New price: £575 inc. UK p&p

SOLDLEE BENNETT. (Deceased). "CRAFT & CARVE".

A very rare knife !  It not often I get asked to sell a knife from the sadly deceased Lee Bennett, a knifemaker whose work was greatly admired (along with his superb leatherwork). This lovely knife is designed to be worn as a 'Neck Knife', with the overall size of the knife being suitable for a myriad of chores.The steel is D2 Tool steel and a two-part handle of Wenge & Bloodwood, with a mosaic pin and red liners.

Blade: 2-1/2 inches. Oal: 6-3/4 inches. Complete with certificate.

Mint, unused as new condition.

SOLD RAY MEARS/ALAN WOOD. "WOODLORE".

Details added asap.

Mint, unused condition. 

SOLD DBK. NETHERLANDS. "BUSHCRAFTER".

A very hard to acquire knife ! Details added asap.

As new condition, never used. £525 inc. UK p&p.

SOLD BEN & LOIS ORFORD. "WOODLANDER".

Another superb knife from the skilled hands of Husband & Wife Team, Ben & Lois. Their classic Woodlander model in 3mm. 01 Tool steel, with very nice Yew wood. Blade: 4 inches. Oal: 8-1/2 inches.

Mint, as new condition. 

MORAKNIV. SWEDEN. "GARBERG".

In my opinion, the best knife to ever come out of the Mora stable !

This is the stainless steel version, with the Multi-mount, and appears to be unused. Excellent condition. £65 inc. UK p&p.

SOLD RAY MEARS/ALAN WOOD. "WOODLORE".

A knife that needs no introduction ! This is an earlier example of this iconic knife, as shown by the full width tang ( Alan gradually tapered the tang as the design evolved ) and the slimmer - and more sculptured - handle. Complete with original leather sheath which shows light storage marks. This knife also shows signs of light sharpening.

Very good condition. POA.

JARED OESER. USA. " One-off BUSHCRAFT".

Jared is one of the USA's Premier Makers, mainly known for his folders which are highly sought after. Every once in a while he makes a fixed blade and I understand that this is a rare knife being his only Bushcraft knife with a Flat grind. The 'fit & finish' are superb as befitting his reputation as I'm sure whoever buys this knife will agree. 01 carbon tool steel with a G10 handle (and spacers) this knife feels great in (my) hand.

Complete with a black leather sheath - with firesteel holder - also made by Jared.

Mint, unused condition. £450 inc. UK p&p.

COLD STEEL. USA. "BUSH RANGER".

A long discontinued model from Cold Steel in their fabled Carbon V steel, which has a black epoxy powder coating.

This is what they had to say about it in their year 2000 catalogue : "Designed by Lynn C. Thompson to fulfil the need for a rugged, light sheath knife that's large enough to be useful in an emergency, yet small enough to wear on your belt everyday". Blade: 7-1/2 inches. Oal: 12-1/2 inches. Thickness:3/16 inches. Weight: 8.8oz. Complete with original nylon sheath & box. Mint, unused cond. £345 inc. UK p&p.

RAY MEARS/STEVE WADE COX. "BUSHCRAFT KNIVES".

SOLD Top: Woodlore Pro. (the very last made by Steve)

SOLD Middle: Oak handle Bushcraft.

SOLD Bottom: 30 year Ann. ( Ltd. Ed. of 100 knives ).

Please note - althougn never used, the W'lore Pro & 30yr. Ann were stored in their sheaths and so show a very small amount of tarnish. The Oak Handled knife has been sharpened but apart from that is still in excellent condition. All knives complete with original boxes and sheaths.

Prices on Application.

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. 

BEN & LOIS ORFORD. "NORDIC CARVER".

COBBLEBLADE. UKRAINE. "HARPOON CAMP KNIFE".

Please email for details on this superb using knife.

Excellent-nr. Mint condition. £340 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
