Three Finger Maple Utility Knife

Regular price $750.00

Forged, shaped, reground and heat treated by renowned metalsmith, Cary Thomas, the Three Finger Maple Utility Knife has a story that's all its own.

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.

Small and versatile, utility knives are ideal for work such as cutting hides and cordage, scraping hides, and cleaning fish. 

While factory-made knives quickly wear out and depreciate, custom knives like the Three Finger Maple Utility Knife are truly superior, designed to be used for a lifetime and then passed on as treasured heirlooms.
