Item description:

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. When life gives you a long-forgotten bundle of carbon steel…well I think you see where we’re going with this. 

We’ve long been fans of simple carbon steels. There’s just something about a steel that develops a patina and takes a hair popping edge off an Arkansas stone that hits you right in the nostalgia! 

A while back, after sifting through some of the things that have been stowed away since our move following Hurricane Laura, we ran across a large bundle of 1095 carbon steel. The stock had been shelved and forgotten. Since we can never shut off the ‘maker’ part of our brains, we couldn’t logically just walk away from a material with no purpose. Of course, we immediately sat down and commenced to designing the knife that you see here. 

Each CS-1 is hammer finished, hand-ground to a satin finish, & heat-treated in-house. Includes leather sheath, also made in-house. Free Sharpening for life!

*Please note: Due to the random nature of patterns produced during the process of applying a hammered finish, we cannot guarantee that the knife you receive will look exactly like the knife pictured, however, it will look very similar. Each hammered finish is unique and means each knife will be distinct. No two alike!

*Carbon steel knives will develop a patina over time with use. This is a natural and authentic characteristic that enhances its appeal. Be sure to regularly clean and thoroughly dry them after use, apply a thin layer of food-safe mineral oil to the blade, and store them in a dry place away from moisture to prevent spot rusting.
