Chris Caine runs his own succesful survival school in the U.K. and has been living wild in the U.K. for the past 15 years. He is a former student of John "Lofty" Wiseman.
Made from from 5mm, 75 Carbon Steel 54/56 Rockwell in Sheffield, England, this knife can compete with the best of them.
It is a full tang design, with polished Micarta handles, and a striking red liner design. The over sized handle allows it to be gripped in numerous ways, giving the wielder more control over the amount of power and finesse required for individual tasks.
It is supplied sharp, and is strong enough for any Bushcraft task you care to throw at it, from felling trees, to spliting logs for kinderling, to delicate work such as feathering.
Weighing in at just over 850 grams, the heft and weight just goes to substiniate the build quality.
The blade has a convex grind to allow for a more durable edge, and to facilitate ease of sharpening.
The modern design Cordura three button sheath is made to a high standard and is fully articulated.
Very similar to the "Lofty" in appearance, both being derivatives of the Parang family, this is a heavier model, with a larger grip.
Hand made by Master craftsman Barry Holden, of Scorpion Knives, Sheffield, England, makers of the Lofty Wiseman Survival Knife.
