Prestige Leather Axe - Thuya Burl
  • Prestige Leather Axe - Thuya Burl

    SKU: 22085

    A different take on the traditional western round-knife or half-moon knife. Only one tip of a traditional round-knife is generally used and the full length of the blade is rarely utilised. This version does away with one tip, providing an additional thumb grip in it's place and an ergonomic curved handle. More nimble and efficient than a traditional round-knife... a quarter knife?


    This beauty has a rounded handle, choil and spine for comfort. With the full distal taper from the handle to the cutting edge and the polished 17 degree edge - it glides through 10oz leather with ease. A beautifully burled and hard-wearing stabilized Thuya burl handle. This knife is  crafted in N690 stainless steel - corrosion resistant, holds an edge for along time and is easy to get razor sharp with just a few strokes on a strop (less blade to sharpen than a traditional round-knife :-) ). This knife makes easy work of straight lines and gentle curves.


    The 'Premium' is an upgrade on the standard Leather Axe with 'A' grade wood, fibre liner and a mosaic pin make this tool something special!
