1803 knives have a distinctly rugged, Australian aesthetic that celebrates the character of natural antler and the traditional forging process. The antlers are naturally shed by red deer on a farm near Orange NSW, then collected to be shaped and crafted to fit around carbon steel blades which are hand forged in the historic Tharwa Valley ACT. The knives are produced in small runs, with no antler or blade alike, making a truly unique & special product.
This lovely little folding knife can be used as a classic pocket knife, an old-school foil cutter for special bottles of wine that may still arrive with a cork or even a parcel opener. An excellent camping companion! Each friction-folding blade is individually forged using carbon steel to match the shape of the antler tine. It is wonderful craftsmanship and the simple beauty of these special little folding knives will stop you in your tracks.
Knives made from carbon steel will patina and tarnish, this is part of the blade’s inherent, rustic beauty. Please follow the care guide provided to maintain your knife in premium condition.
Measures: approximately 19cm long when extended (7cm blade, 11cm handle). Sizes may vary
Due to the nature of antler, each knife is unique and will vary from the ones pictured.
