The Recurve Bushcraft Knife

This is my style of bushcraft knife, it has more of a belly than the Woodlore and in my opinion its design is more suited to dressing animals and cutting wood for camp duties as opposed to making spoons. Although on saying that, if you have a look on the Mors Kochanski page you will see a couple of photos of a netting needle carved using one of these knives.


The Scandi ground blade profile, used by the Scandinavians for hundreds of years, makes this knife ideally suited to woodcutting and perfect for skinning and light splitting work. The flat grind is without a secondary bevel which aids in the ease of sharpening, a better cutting ability and strength whilst carving.


This knife excels at cutting wood. The belly on the knife makes wood come down to the ricasso end of the blade, this is where the knife wants to cut on a normal power cut. The wood just naturally goes there so you just cut and get on with the job.  For batoning this knife goes straight through sizable pieces of wood no problems.  The sharp point enables you to make depressions in wood for starting off a bow drill for instance or piercing cuts into an animal for dressing
