Bird and Trout Knife

Regular price $460.00

The Bird and Trout is forged by renowned metalsmith Cary Thomas in the mountains of northern Idaho.

Thomas recycles premium 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.

Slim and razor-sharp, the Bird and Trout is ideal for any precise camping or hunting task.  

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