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.
Handsome, sturdy and strong, this little knife is possibly one of the most beautiful oyster knives you will ever see! The hand-forged stainless steel blade has a full tang through the length of the shucker handle to provide superior stability, balance and weight. It is then set between two formed scales of red deer antler and finished with three small brass nails.
Antler feels good in the hand, while also providing additional grip when wet. Oyster knives are strong and hardy tools, and if you lose your concentration or slip, injuries can occur. So please be careful, it is not an easy job!
Measures: 14 x 3 x 2.5 cm
Due to the nature of antler, each knife is unique and will vary from the ones pictured.
