Readymade Tools and all Toolmaking components for hunters, fishermen, bushcraft enthusiasts and collectors.

Readymade Tools and all Toolmaking components for hunters, fishermen, bushcraft enthusiasts and collectors.


All of OUR Tools are made from the very best Carbon, Damascus, Laminated, Semi Stainless or Stainless Steel. With handles or scales to compliment the style of the steel blank and hand sewn wet moulded sheaths that are purely to our patterns and designs. Costs range from £75-£800 for a complete item including sheath.

Our materials are sourced from sustainable areas of the world, such as the UK, America, Scandinavia, Africa and Australia. We use coloured Vulcanised Fibre, Acrylics, Brass, Nickel Silver, Moose, Woolly Mammoth, Reindeer Antler spacers and caps, with different types of bolsters that add extra style.

We have plenty of UK woods standing in planks as well as Micarta and Acrylics in sheet form, ready to be used, so handle sizes are not a problem.
Every tool and its components are gathered and matched at the time of making, together with an individually hand sewn and wet moulded vegetable tanned leather sheath. There will be some slight variation in the design and no two units will be quite the same.

COMPREHENSIVE RANGE
We are always coming up with new ideas and shapes using the very latest materials and techniques with over 140 tools in our collection.

BladeBond Extreme

AOP-EXT

BladeBond Extreme AOP-EXT

30.00

This is an INCREDIBLE system, with the highest heat resistance of any off the shelf epoxy on the open market. This REALLY gives the builder a cushion during the handle shaping process, so that excessive heat build up doesn't destroy the scale to tang bond. Where Ultra and West G-Flex will max out around 170 F (76 C), Extreme is good up to 245 F (118 C). Additionally it has very high peel and shear strength, and is designed to withstand high impact forces as well.

Any excess resin can be removed with Acetone before it cures.

We have tested this in our workshop and it is excellent value!

Sold in 115 x 250mm Strips

Now one of the main abrasives for knifemakers.

I cut this into strips and because of its flexibility it is great to work with, the finish on metal and wood is superb

The unique patented sanding material contains thousands of small holes which hold the dust and other particles without clogging the disc surface. The result is seen as a very uniform sanding pattern and a perfectly smooth surface. Since the amount of airborne dust has been minimized, the workshop stays cleaner too. A tap over the dust extractor hood will suck the sheet clean ready for more work. Abranet® was been developed for sanding all woods and composite materials.
