Knives for cooking, hunting, pigging, fishing, survival, bush craft and more are all available.
We prefer to forge blades from high carbon steel; it’s stronger and holds its sharp edge for longer. We have a range of Cerakote colours to choose from, which helps protect the steel from patina. Damascus steel and stainless-steel blades can also be ordered.
Our knife handles are primarily crafted from Australian hardwood timbers and burls, which are exceptionally hard-wearing and polish up beautiful. G10 synthetic is available in a range of colours and deer antler or bone is another option for your knife handle. Custom sheaths from leather, Kydex or wood, or knife blocks can be made to suit your order if required.
Your Gidgee Knife can be a simple design or as decorative as you like. Take a look through our gallery for inspiration or contact us now if you know what you’re after.
