A custom twist on a SK classic design! 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 a unique treasure. The ironwood burl handle paired with brass and some extra pins really makes this knife come alive!
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.
On the tundra, the Muskox fears no predator. In your hand, the Muskox will fear no task. Crafted to fit even the largest hand, this heavy-duty beast is built for the toughest jobs in the wild. The straight back design sports a large skinning belly and full flat ground blade to achieve maximum effectiveness. A blade uncommonly light for its size, it’s well-balanced, bold, and ready for real work. Like its namesake, the Muskox will defend you from the tasks that prey on you.

*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.
*Logo and other markings will be placed on the blade after purchase is made.
