Kodiak with Box Elder and Turkish Briar Handle
About this Custom Edition Kodiak Knife;
This custom edition, one of a kind, Kodiak features a fully hand contoured, stabilized box elder crotch bolster and Turkish briar handle. All wood is stabilized and finished in house allowing us to bring the finest materials and finishes. The blade features our "Lightning Strike" high carbon damascus pattern with our popular, hand "chipped" texturing along the flats of the blade. All of our damascus steel is forged in house using 1080 AND 15N20 (2% Nickel). The leather sheath is made from 8oz, saddle skirting, that comes from Wickett & Craig USA. The sheath has a custom "Forest" pattern that wraps around the entire sheath. The sheath has been hand wet-formed to provide a nice tight fit for this one of a kind piece.
THE KODIAK - BUILT TO HUNT. CRAFTED TO CONQUER.
The Kodiak is our premier Schenk Knife. Named for the mighty predator of the North, this knife knows no equal out in the field. A stout, perfectly balanced all-around lightweight knife for the selective outdoorsman. Outfitted with a piercing tip on a rolled blade spine that will conquer any task from camping to gutting on small or large game. Our premium belly is optimal for repeated sharpening with resistance to blade thinning over time. The Kodiak is finished off with a slight recurve that handles woodcutting and harder materials while the hand-rolled contoured handle lessens hand fatigue and soreness. It’s the all-in-one game hunter's blade that’s become a legend in the wild.

***Just like all things, proper care should be given to the knife blade. We recommend cleaning with warm water and completely drying after use. We recommend applying WD40 or some type of gun oil to the blade immediately after drying to help deter spotting/rusting. Always clean and oil your knife before extended storage. Never store your knife in the leather sheath for extended time periods. The high-carbon nature of this damascus steel is prone to rusting and discoloration if not properly cared for.
