7/20/22- First run knives are all sold out. There will be more this fall, date TBD. In the mean time, DLT Trading has a few for sale.
Everyone deserves a great knife!
In order to help more people get a Fry knife, I’ve partnered with White River Knife and Tool in Fremont, Michigan to have knives manufactured. White River built these versions of my Utility Hunter in the USA, out of US materials, to my specifications. To the best of our ability, this knife is the same profile, same edge style and thickness, and same quality heat treatment as my custom versions.
OAL is 7 3/4″, with a 3 1/4″ blade. The handle material is bolted on, with an unlined lanyard hole. The blade finish is tumbled stonewash.
The steel in these knives is S35VN, professionally heat treated to 59/60 RC. I had intended to use primarily Ultrex Suretouch for this production run, but the material wasn’t available in sufficient quantities. So, I turned the White River folks loose to use what they had around their factory. The sheaths are leather, manufactured by Smith and Son in Sulphur, Louisiana.
Lead time for each group of knives is roughly 3-4 months from the time I place the order to the time I receive the knives, pending any supply chain issues. A fall run has been commissioned, and I’ll release details as soon as I have a projected delivery.
