Semi-Custom Virus Badger
About this Semi-Custom "Virus" Badger:
This Semi-Custom "Virus" Badger was inspired by the Covid-19 virus that the world is currently battling. We thought this was the perfect handle to represent these very wild and trying times the world is going through. This Badger features a unique, one of a kind, resin handle that even has parts that glow in the dark. The base layer of the handle is dyed and stabilized maple burl which gives a very cool sense of depth to the handle. The handle has a neon green g10 liner to accent the edge of the knife handle. The fully hand-contoured handle feels natural in the hand and ensures there won't be hot spots when serious work is being done. The Elmax blade is ready for serious work and will hold an edge better than most any knife on the market. The leather sheath is made from 8 oz, saddle skirting, that comes from Wickett & Craig USA. The sheath has a hand-tooled hex 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 knife. Each knife and sheath is uniquely hand-crafted and made by our skilled team of artisans, here in Idaho.

*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 wood has been stabilized but because it's a natural product proper care should be given to help it last for generations o come. Light coats of mineral oil will help preserve the brilliance of the wood.
