Woodlore Bushcraft Knife

Regular price $750.00

The Woodlore Bushcraft Knife 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 works of art.

The "Woodlore" style is the brainchild of legendary bushcraft instructor Ray Mears. Designed for versatility and durability, the Woodlore is capable of delicate work like skinning game or rugged work like processing kindling.

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