Wilderness Ironworks Utility Knife
Forged by hand, especially for us in Minnesota by Robert Burns.
Robert burns grew up camping in the outdoors of Pennsylvania, eventually becoming a wilderness survival and primitive skills instructor. Robert also began training as a blacksmith at the age of thirteen. At 19, he began to incorporate designs from his bush craft experience into his knives and axes and has been producing high quality tools for the outdoors ever since. He is a member of the American Bladesmith’s Society and is pursuing his Journeyman Smith ranking. The description that follow on this page are in his own words. Each piece is a functional piece of art made to work and be at home in the outdoors.
My favorite size of blade, this one is designed and inspired from my time as a wilderness survival instructor; to me, it is the perfect size for all Bushcraft and camp tasks. For the handle, I wanted to use some very special local material, Lake Superior diver salvaged oak, old growth cut close to 300 year ago.
