Men who went to sea before the era of motorised ships had to have knives for everyday use. Whether officer, boatswain or sail maker – everyone needed a practical, versatile knife. Many a seafarer even carved his own knife handle during the long months at sea. He would cut his initials into it, treating his knife as if it were a work of art.
Our seafarer knife has a single-edged blade made of carbon steel with a false edge that takes up around one-third of the blade. The hardwood handle is attached to the blade by a metal socket and decorated with a carved hand.
The seafarer knife includes a scabbard made of brown leather.
