Brute de Forge Camp Knife


Recommended Posts

Hi Gents

 

I've just finished this Brute de Forge camp knife, the blade is forged from EN45, blade length is just shy of 240mm, it is 6mm thick on the spine with an overall length of 365mm. The cutting edge has a shallow recurve, the blade flats have been left with the forge scale on and the secondary bevel has a forced acid etch patina. The finger choil has been flared in that Brute de Forge style, the full tang is tapered with tan Micarta scales, blue liners and two S/S Corby bolts. The leather sheath is wet formed, dyed saddle tan, the belt keeper has been cut through the welt in the mountain man style and the welt has been stitched with blue thread to match the scale liners.

Thank you for taking the time to look, all comments and critique very welcome.

All the best

Steve

Dennis you're bang on the money. The customer wanted a hard use camp knife with a brute de forge finger choil. He's not seen the final article yet. I just hope it pushes his buttons. Thanks for your comments guys.
