The craftsmen at Blind Horse Knives are outdoorsmen first and foremost as well as skilled artisans who make heirloom-quality knives in the United States.
Examples of their handiwork typically exhibit practical, no-frills design, tough-as-nails construction and impeccable workmanship—at remarkably reasonable prices. One such product is the Woodsman Pro with its 4-inch drop-point blade of 5/32-inch-thick 01 tool steel that features a saber grind and a durable point.
Equipped with a hand-filling set of bead-blasted Micarta scales that are pinned and epoxied in place, the knife is stout enough to baton through wood for fire-building or shelter-construction and balanced enough to field dress game. Sheaths can be had in either flapped leather or open-top leather/Kydex styles, with a loop to hold a ferrocerrium rod for firestarting, and are as perfectly executed as the knives they hold. Price: $160.
