Another customized version of an SK classic! The spider twist high-carbon damascus blade is made of 1080 and 15N20 and is forged here in our factory in Idaho. No two pieces of damascus are ever the same, making each knife like a finger print. The ironwood burl handle paired with the mokume bolster make this knife an instant classic.
The leather sheath is made from 8 oz, saddle skirting that has been dyed and hand tooled. The leather we used comes from one of the oldest tanneries in the USA, Wickett & Craig. The sheath has a hand-tooled stamp pattern along the edge of the sheath. The sheath has been hand wet-formed to provide a nice tight fit for this one of a kind knife. Each knife is hand forged, ground and made by our team of skilled artisans.
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.
