The Western Kodiak
About this Custom Edition Kodiak Knife; (Each Custom is 1 of 1)
The Western Kodiak custom knife features a fully hand contoured, desert ironwood handle. The pins are made from carbon fiber which are clued in place with 20 ton epoxy. The ,forged, mokume bolster brings the brass, copper and nickel accents that compliment the ironwood and damascus blade beautifully. All wood is stabilized and finished in house allowing us to bring the finest materials and finishes possible. The blade features our "Classic Twist" high carbon damascus pattern. All of our damascus steel is forged in house, here in Idaho, 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 been hand tooled by one of our skilled artisans. The tooling wraps around the entire sheath with the SK "CE" logo front and center. After all of the tooling is finished, each sheath is wet-formed to each particular custom knife which ensures a nice, custom fit.Each custom knife is like a thumb print and no two are alike.

***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.
