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!

Tulipwood Scales

6438

Tulipwood Scales 6438

18.00

Dimensions: 9 x 125 x 38mm.

Dalbergia variabilis. Tulip is also called: jacaranda, bahia rosewood, pink wood, jacaranda Rosa, and bois de rose. This rosewood is a small tree (shrub) that averages 2-10" in diameter without sapwood. Most billets are 3-5" in diameter as this is a rare species and is only found in small 1" or 2" lumber or veneer and is not plentiful in either. There is a prominent heart defect that prevents many clean boards over 4-5" in width. In fact the average width is only 2-3/8". Weighing about 60 pounds per cubic foot, the wood is dense and takes a very nice polish. Used for fine articles including knife handles, turning, jewelry boxes, and pens. Brazil

As used for the Seven Oaks Knife. See http://www.english-handmade-knives.co.uk/SevenOaksMain.html.

Size approx 38x38x152 mm (Most pieces require stabilisation)

Spalted Maple is technically not a specific species of Maple, but rather a general description of any type of Maple that has been allowed to begin initial stages of decay, and then subsequently dried (preventing further decay). The partial decay, called spalting, gives the wood dark contrasting lines and streaks where fungus has begun to attack the wood.
