What's In the Cock Box?

Very few people could guess what came in this box...

A mysterious delivery
My amazing mother saw this online and decided that, in her words, I "needed to have it" and after seeing it myself I couldn't agree more! If there is one thing I love more than knives it is quality workmanship and this certainly does not disappoint.

A gift from the best mother in the world
It is a custom handmade bushcraft knife made by Rhode Knives! (which explains the Rhode Island Red on their logo)

The handle is Becote and has a beautiful grain pattern that really complements the mosaic centre pin and copper and brass loveless bolts. The handmade full grain leather sheath is very sturdy, secures the blade snugly and the yellow stitching really suits it.

The blade is 01 Tool Steel, razor sharp, full tang and incredibly robust. To top it off it is a scandi grind so incredibly easy to maintain a fine sharp cutting edge on the knife.

I'm totally head over heels in love with this knife, the craftmanship is amazing and it feels perfect in the hand, it literally hasn't left my belt since it arrived. Of course all great blades need a name, and this one is no different so I have chosen a good strong viking word and named her Thorn, I'm sure no one will need me to translate that one since it is a word we still use today

  2. I totally agree Sue. I also think that people are quick to complain about poor products but not enough people sing praises about the things they love.

  5. I can't help but admire this handsome custom bushcraft knife! Like you, I love my blades and it seems I'm forever collecting these babies. I've been camping since I was in middle school, so it's not surprising that I also love survival tools that are excellently made. My latest find is a Ka-Bar fixed blade knife that I found fascinating. I frequently read reviews and I'm so pleased that it is made in the USA.
