Scandi Hunter – Custom 10-3/4” Hunting Knife
Click To Enlarge

The base high carbon steel blade is from Finland and has a Scandi grind to it.  The blades are acid etched, coated with a boiled linseed oil mixture and then finally coated with oil.  The photos of the blades wherein they look “wet” are actually showing oil.

The scales of the handle are made from black paper micarta which is shape by hand and affixed to the Damascus blade by Brownell’s Acrglas epoxy and 1/4” brass pins.  The blade intentionally sits lower in the handle to give you a different amount of leverage and feel.  I like the feel and can rest my thumb right at the top leading edge of the handle.

Here are the details:

  • Overall length of the knife:  10-3/4” approximately
  • Blade material:  High carbon steel
  • Blade hardness:  58-60 HRC
  • Blade length: 5-5/8”
  • Blade thickness:  0.128”
  • Blade finish:  Acid etched, coated with a boiled linseed oil mixture and then finally coated with oil.  The photos of the blades wherein they look “wet” are actually showing the oil.
  • Handle Material:  Black paper micarta
  • Handle length:  5.5”
  • Handle thickness:  5/8” approx..
  • Weight of knife:  6.6 oz
  • Sheath material: 0.080 Black Kydex
  • Sheath mounting – Large Tek-Lok belt attachment, rivets are on 0.75” centers allowing for the use of a wide variety of mounting points including large Tek-Loks, Molle-Loks or even strapping via paracord
  • Knife retention:  Friction and a nylon strap with snap fastener
  • Weight of sheath assembly including piggyback sheath:  7.8 oz
  • Total weight of knife and sheath:  1lb 3.8oz

Since this is high carbon steel and not stainless, you will need to keep it oiled.  If you want to remove any scratches, use a solvent to remove the oil first and then the coloring can be restored with either warm apple cider vinegar or ferric chloride.  The dark color you see was created with a ferric chloride (70%)and apple cider vinegar (30%) mix heated to 90F degrees.  The acid is then washed off, the water removed with WD40 and two light coats of boiled linseed oil are applied to give it the aged look.  Once the BLO has dried, the blade is still brushed with clean engine oil.

Also, if you move any of the fasteners, be sure to use a medium strength threadlocker, such as blue medium Loctite, to secure the screws.  I did apply a some threadlocker to all screws just in case so use a screw driver or bit that fully engages the screws so you don’t damage the heads.  All screws are 8-32 thread.

Please note that the buyer is responsible for compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
