The Advanced Knifemaking Gift is for the experienced knifemaker,
woodworker and crafts-person with experience shaping handles and/or
doing fine woodworking projects.
This gift set includes our Made
in the USA Jantz Pattern Blade 31 in 1095 Hi Carbon Steel with a
Stonewash finish, Merino Ram's Horn handle material, 3/16" brass
bolster, brass corby rivets and brass thong hole tubing.
Ram's Horn is a natural material procured from South Africa and is
challenging to work due to the different thicknesses and shaping of the
material in each scale set. Scale sets may have curve to them, but each
is hand selected to fit the Pattern 31 blade. Ram's horn is best
fitted by grinding the back side of the scales first to achieve
thickness and size, then work the front as minimally as possible to
maintain the most color and texture possible from the handle material.
