This is the Wilderness Classic. Based on the well known and loved Kephart design, the Wilderness Classic sports a beautiful "heat treat" finish on the blade.
The 1095 high carbon steel blade is flat ground and has a 4.5" cutting edge. The knife is heat treated for edge holding ability and toughness. Blade thickness is 1/8".
The 'Classic' has the efficient and comfortable handle the Kephart design is known for: rounded with no protrusions for a multi-versatile grip and nothing to create a hot spot on the hand during use. The handle scales are secured Loveless bolts and epoxy.
The handle material is available in two thicknesses: approximately 1/4" thick per side, or approximately 3/8" thick per side.
The 1/4" thick handle scales are comfortably rounded and provide a slimmer handle thickness with a somewhat rectangle cross section, as preferred by some.
The 3/8" thick handle scales offer a fuller and more oval handle cross section, for those who like that better.
The Wilderness classic is a 100% hand made from scratch knife, made to be used by the outdoor enthusiast, hunter, craftsman, camper, or anyone who needs a practical, quality cutting tool.
