Hand Forged Blade

Hand-forged knives tend to be harder and more durable than machine-made. This is due to skilled bladesmiths using manual processes to form their blades into shape. Furthermore, hand-forged models often include bolsters and full tangs compared with stamped knives; as well as being heavier overall.

Hand-forged knives often look more professional than their stamped counterparts, having more character that lends them an individual identity. Furthermore, when properly cared for and maintained they will endure hard use for extended periods of time.

Scandi Grind Blade

The Haswell survival knife features a Scandi-grind blade designed for bushcraft and wood carving, hand forged in charcoal by professional blacksmiths and finished off with an ultra-rugged feel and durability.

Although many may prefer one knife blade style or grind over another, the key to selecting an effective and practical knife for everyday tasks lies in selecting one with an appropriate 30 degree blade angle that provides similar initial cuts; any of these grinds may work equally well for battoning as their thinner shoulders make for easier battoning action than flat or sabre designs.

Full Tang Blade

The Coatree Haswell Survival Knife is constructed from high carbon 1095 steel, providing it with sufficient strength and durability for bushcraft activities. Furthermore, its sheath provides extra security. Furthermore, its classic design makes this an excellent knife choice for beginners to start out using.

Full-tang blades, as used here, extend all the way into their handles, sandwiched between two slabs of handle material and fastened with metallic rivets on either side. Such knives tend to be more reliable, sturdy, and resilient – ideal for camping trips and survival adventures alike.

Encapsulated or skeletonized tangs offer another variation on the full-tang, with their smaller size making them difficult to detect due to being embedded within the handle material.
