Because our knives are forged by hand, they take a considerable amount of time to make.

This knife was designed and hand-forged in Timmonsville, South Carolina, by Reed Moore of Red Forgeworks, using traditional forging techniques combined with an extensive knowledge of modern metallurgical science. The blade style and material make an excellent paring knife, which is equally at home in the kitchen or out in the mountains. This knife has the following features:

- Inspired by the Scandinavian Puukko style knife

- 3.5" Hand-forged 440C high carbon, stainless steel blade, 7.25" total length

- Exceptionally sharp and durable

- Full tang handle with hand-carved, reclaimed, spalted red oak handle

- Distally tapered blade for flexibility

- Blade edge is hardened and tempered to approx. 63 Rockwell C hardness

- Blade is differentially tempered twice, producing a tougher blade with a higher hardness edge than a typical single temper knife of the same composition

- Blade is cryogenically frozen between tempers, increasing edge-holding ability, toughness, and stain-resistance

- Signed with the maker's signature "R" touchmark
