RAY MEARS WILKINSON SWORD BUSHCRAFT KNIFE
NO LONGER MADE and TOTALLY UNAVAILABLE since 2005!
Your world-famous Bushcraft Knife was designed by Ray Mears. It was made by Wilkinson Sword at their specialist sword-making division, which produced swords and knives for the UK Ministry of Defence for supply to the Armed Forces. This same factory made the swords for the Household Cavalry. Sadly, in 2005, MOD awarded the contract overseas and the factory was forced to close. Twelve skilled craftsmen lost their jobs and another piece of British manufacturing history disappeared. When the factory closed, production of this knife ceased. This is your rare opportunity to obtain a very rare Ray Mears knife!
RAY MEARS BUSHCRAFT KNIFE – DESCRIPTION
Your Bushcraft knife has gained a huge following, not only because it is the favoured knife of the world-famous survival and bushcraft expert Ray Mears, but mainly because it is an excellent cutting tool.
Your Ray Mears Bushcraft knife has Black Micarta Handle Slabs, secured with Loveless Brass Handle Rivets, and a Brass Lanyard Tube.
It sharpens very well using water stones, it is extremely strong with a full-length tang, and is a good length for bushcraft wood carving. It splits wood easily when used with a batten.
It has good handle symmetry, feels most comfortable in the hand, and will not rub or chafe your skin, even after extended use.
The blade is made of 01 high carbon tool steel, which is resilient, very tough, and – unlike other steels used in cheaper knives - easy to sharpen outdoors. Crucially for bushcraft use, the blade has good hardness, good toughness, and robust wear resistance.
Your knife has been sharpened and has seen some light use. It comes with its Ray Mears Woodlore Belt Sheath.
