For every savage, having a knife is essential. And for the true gentleman, not just any knife will do. Which is why we commissioned custom knife maker and US Army Veteran, Lucas O’Hara, to create these hand forged “Kodiak” knives. After 8 years of service, he decided his journey would continue serving overseas through contracting. Once stateside, he found his own path in the civilian world. After his first blacksmithing class at a local forge, Goat 'n Hammer, he immediately fell in love with the age old trade. Ever since, forging knives has become more than just a job, it’s an outlet; something he is beyond passionate about. Each knife is beautiful, yet durable. A tough and classic design, intended for extensive use in the outdoors. The perfect embodiment of both Savage and Gentleman, the Kodiak Hand Forged Knife is a one-of-a-kind piece... a visual work of art meant to stand the test of time. It features rustic hammer marks and refined hand sanded, buckeye burl scales. The full tang blade is made from high carbon steel to ensure it maintains its edge.
