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.

Best Selling Items

Black Bog Oak

TL-BBO

Black Bog Oak TL-BBO

15.00

Size 125mm x 40mm x 28mm.

Botanical name: Quercus robur

Origin: England

Dryness: Kiln dried
The picture shown is lighter than the stock. Inky black with a significantly higher density and hardness than ordinary oak, bog oak was created when prehistoric forests were submerged under water and silt in anaerobic conditions thousands of years ago. This stock has been carbon dated and is at least 3300 years old.

The black colour is a chemical reaction between the tannin in the oak and ferrous compounds in the water.

Bog oak is one of the most difficult woods to dry. A very large percentage of material is lost in the drying process and this largely explains the price.

A new Resin 4oz Kit from the USA.

BladeBond Ultra is an unadulterated high performance Polyamine based epoxy system designed to give superior results under extreme conditions. BladeBond Ultra exhibits outstanding permanence on a wide variety of surfaces including hard to bond substrates like oily woods and some thermoplastics. BladeBond Ultra will NEVER shrink and is formulated to retain flexibility under all environmental circumstances. Ultra is measured and mixed in a convenient 1:1 ratio by volume, and has a pot life of 45 min, at 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Usable cure is achieved in 12 hours, but can be force cured at 125 degrees in 2 hours.. When fully cured BladeBond Ultra can be machined, drilled and tapped, and is totally immune to, and unaffected by water, rot and most common solvents and chemicals.

We have tested this product in our workshop and it works especially well when bonding Woolly Mammoth Ivory to Damascus Fultang blades.

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