DescriptionThe Hevi Bushcrafter is a new version of the highly popular Bushcrafter and features 3/16" steel instead of 1/8". It is designed to handle the toughest of tasks and beg for more! It will excel at heavy bushcraft chores such as batoning and tasks that require the tip to be driven into the material. Even though it is an "overbuilt" full-sized knife, it only weighs about 8 ounces and is compact enough to easily belt carry or pack on any outdoor trip. The "broomstick" style handle is very comfortable and fills the hand allowing for a good grip. The Hevi Bushcrafter is a classic outdoor style knife for all bushcraft, hunting or any other outdoor task.
A heavy duty leather dangler sheath is included to complete the package. The dangler can be removed so the knife can be carried in the "high ride" position if desired.
This knife features A2 tool steel which is an excellent cutlery steel. A2 tool steel will take a very keen edge, is abrasive resistant and tough which makes this an excellent knife for aggressive users.

About A2 Carbon Steel
AISI A2 is a carbon steel with the addition of 5% chromium and 1.1% molybdenum, allowing it to quench in still air (A for Air.) While stainless amounts of chromium (12% or more) make tool steel gummy and hard to sharpen, the modest amount of chromium in A2 improves its toughness and abrasion resistance, but imparts only a slight measure of corrosion resistance (like high carbon steel, it will rust and appropriate preventative care must be taken.) During heat treatment the chromium addition combines with some of the carbon in the alloy to form chromium carbides: tough, hard particles dispersed through the steel. These carbides are the primary contributors to A2's celebrated edge retention. A2 is one of the steels that responds well to cryogenic treatment. This extreme cold treatment (-320 degrees F) essentially finishes the original quench, increasing the Steel's toughness without any decrease in hardness. You get increased wear resistance without any increase in brittleness so a cryogenically treated blade will hold its edge longer. You can keep working instead of sharpening. A2 is a great steel that offers a real improvement in edge retention over some of the simpler carbon steels.
