Description: This exceptional camp knife is made by Steam Mill Hollow Knife Works. SMHKW was starting in 1990 by Don Hanson III, his father (Don Hanson II), and Don's brother David. The Hansons live in Steam Mill Hollow Missouri, deep in the Ozarks. After a few years they each went back to doing their own stuff. Recently David and Kyle (Don's son) started working in Don's shop and they decided to revive the old brand. The collaborative effort is exceptional!
The blade of this camp knife is made from an old, large sawmill blade (8670 carbon steel) and is heat treated to 60 Hrc. The flats are forge finished. A differential heat treatment ensures a resilient, durable blade. Stabilized Missouri black walnut handle scales are set on a full tang for strength. The domed handle is completed with a lined lanyard hole.
The recurve blade makes this one heck of an efficient chopper!
Accompanied by a hand stitched leather belt sheath.
This knife is featured on page 40 of the 45th Anniversary Collector's Edition in Blade Magazine.
