Our classic knives with finger guards aren't just useful for woodcarving and construction work. They're also very popular within the paper and pulp industry. This knife is designed and intended for Scandinavian construction workers. Here, our priority is a sharp and durable edge with a good grip, which means that the look of the spine isn’t a high priority feature. You are more than welcome to use any of our knives for your intended needs, but keep in mind that the spine will be 'raw' (not grinded) on most craftsmen and construction knives. Therefore, it’s not compatible with a fire starter.
Just like the majority of our classical knives, the Classic 612 is made of carbon steel. This also means that it requires a bit more care, so make sure to wipe the blade after usage and oil it regularly. The double finger guard makes for safe handling as it prevents fingers from sliding forward onto the blade.
The red wooden handle of painted birch wood is both beautiful and easy to work with.
