These blades represent a tradition of Appalachian culture that is to "use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without!", a famous slogan used during WWII.
This line is crafted from repurposed antique metal like crosscut sawblades. Mountain culture employed every bit of material one could get their hands on. Antler and scrap metal were highly valued materials for their strength and durability. This line incorporates both of those materials to create a high functioning knife design for another important aspect of mountain culture, skinning and processing wild game.
These knives have also been noted to be good carving blades, particularly our Fingernail Pickers.
