Wraith

$265.00

Wraith is a newer model added for the Queensland Knife Show in 2023 that was so popular that I decided to add it to the catalogue. Based on the blade design of the Apparition “Wraith” is the smaller brother. Measuring at 290 mm overall and with a blade length of 170 mm (6.6 inches) and at it widest point 55 mm. The blade has been hand forged from 1/4 inch thick 80CRV2 High Carbon Steel. 80CRV2 is an excellent blade steel similar to 1084 with the addition of Chromium and Vanadium. The former adds a small amount of corrosion resistance and toughness while the Vanadium give the steel increased wear resistance and extends the life of the cutting edge reducing the amount of re-sharpening needed.

This knife has a full tang construction giving increased durability for the heavy jobs. Additionally the blade has been distally tapered from 6.3 mm at the Ricasso down to 2mm at the tip and the tang also has a gentle taper.The handle Grips are Dyed and Stabilised Curly Birch. The process expertly executed by Refined By James has brought out the highlights in the swirling grain pattern,viewed in the sun it appears like a glistening marble and is quite spectacular. The handle grips are set onto Blue G10 liners and held by 3 Stainless Steel pins.

Wraith comes with a hand made textured leather sheath designed for hip carry on either left or right side.

This knife will be made again but will have different handle materials. Blade steel is subject to change due to availability.
