Three Finger Canvas Utility Knife

Regular price $650.00

The Three Finger Canvas Utility Knife is forged by renowned metalsmith Cary Thomas in the mountains of northern Idaho.

Thomas recycles steel from Idaho lumber mills, repurposing ancient saw blades into knife art. His handles are one-of-a-kind, custom designed for balance and strength, and his hand-tooled sheaths are themselves singular work of art.

Small and versatile, a Utility Knife is ideal for any general or utility work such as cutting hides and cordage, scraping hides, and cleaning fish. 

Custom knives are undeniably superior to factory-made clones that inevitably wear out and depreciate. Crafted by a true master, the Three Finger Canvas Utility Knife is designed to be used for a lifetime and then passed on as a treasured heirloom.
