Woodlore Knife

Brand: Ray Mears Bushcraft
Weight: 875 g         1 review
The Woodlore Knife was originally designed by Ray Mears and is hand-made by Alan Wood, one of the world's finest knife-makers.

Ray had used many different types of knives before, all of which proved unsuitable for Bushcraft. So, over a period of six years, he designed one which would meet all of his demands. He has now been using this knife for well over a decade. It is expertly crafted from O1 High Carbon Tool Steel, which is strong, sharpens to a very fine edge, and has a full tang sculpted scale handle in birds eye maple.

Due to a limited supply of knives, we regret to say that we are no longer taking names for the Woodlore Knife Waiting List. As such, Ray Mears recommends the alternative Ray Mears Bushcraft Knife, produced by revered British knife-maker Stephen Wade Cox. Hand-made in the UK in small numbers, the Ray Mears Bushcraft Knife is based very closely on the design of the Woodlore Knife, and is sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Alternatively and most recently available, there is the Woodlore Knife Pro, designed more for the professional user. This beautiful tapered knife is also made by Stephen Wade Cox and is available in small batches from the Woodlore website on a first-come, first-served basis. Each knife is uniquely numbered.

Product Reviews

Woodlore Knife is rated 5/5 based on 1 customer review.

Overall Rating:

  1 of 1

  There are three items of kit that, to me, have become the very symbols of adventure, exploration, the great outdoors, the wilderness, the woods, and the expedition. These are: My Woodlore Knife, Ray Mears Leather Belt Pouch and a Traser Military Watch. I've used the Woodlore Knife for a number of years. It is the finest knife I have ever owned. It is a true wilderness knife, equally at home in the woods of Britain, the African bush or the wilds of America. It is easily capable of splitting pine logs as thick as your forearm, to making fine wood shavings to help build a roaring fire, or slicing onions or potatoes ('Grandpa' would've probably used it to shave with!). The Woodlore Knife was designed by an absolute perfectionist. Hand made by a fine master craftsman..... all for us folk that want only.... the very finest.
