Raven PK1 Bushcraft Knife

The image above shows a production prototype for our Raven PK1 Bushcraft Knife.
We worked closely with Paul Kirtley, expert in Bushcraft and Wilderness survival, on the design and field testing.

This is the first production Bushcraft knife we have made, the development of the design and its evolution can be seen here.

Thirteen numbered prototypes are being made available prior to general release,
twelve in O1 and the thirteenth in Stainless Damascus.

Reservations are also being taken for the production knives, which are serial numbered starting 001.

These knives are being made in both 01 tool steel and RWL 34 stainless steel as a standard,
hardened to 58 - 59 RC for O1 and 61 - 62 RC for the RWL34.

There are numerous ways to customise your knife, including altering the steel used for the blade
and the materials for the handle and fittings.

Details of some of the modifications available are listed at the bottom of this page.
