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.

Black Bog Oak

TL-BBO BX-F

Black Bog Oak TL-BBO BX-F

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.

Details

Grind Scandi
Steel Stainless steel

Blade length: 71 mm
Blade width: 25 mm
Blade thickness: 3,2 mm
Total: 198 mm
Steel: X50CrMoV15
Bolster: 3572, 3576

The Polar knife blades are a result of the collaboration between Brisa and Lauri.

Decades of combined experience, know-how and a keen interest in knifemaking, guarantees that these puukko style blades will live up to any standard. Improving the well-known Lauri blades by adding a small ricasso, and giving the edge a finer grind greatly improves the overall experience. And, our own Polar brand as a final touch.

The ricasso will aid makers, new and old, to get a good finish between the bolster and the blade. This aspect is seen as one of the more difficult parts of knifemaking. A smoother edge will increase sharpness, and also add to the durability as there will be less risk of chipping.

Most models are available in both 80CrV2 carbonsteel and X50CrMoV15 stainless. The carbonsteel will shine with its toughness, while the stainless will have lower maintenance.

The design is understated Finnish, which adheres much to a form following function principle. The blades are simple and robust in their elegance, just like the Puukko style knives that they are meant for.
