At Oaken Lore knives we make knives for the outdoors person, whether that be for hunting or bushcraft.
With many years experience in the field using knives I think I know a good knife when I see one, that's why I started making knives. There was always something not quite right about the knife I had. It would be either the wrong shape blade, too hard to sharpen or wouldn't keep the edge.
Lots of experimentation with different materials and processes I decided to use only tool steel, 01 tool steel to be precise. It keeps a razor sharp edge very well quite often only needing stropping on leather to put the edge back even after heavy use and it doesn't take to long to sharpen from dull.
