Each tool is hand crafted and is able to carry out the toughest and most arduous tasks with great efficiency, year after year.
The beech wood grip is contoured to fit the hand so comfortably it can be used for extensive periods without discomfort. To ensure consistency, the grip is CNC milled by master gunsmiths Boxall & Edmiston, and being beech wood it can be tuned by an individual to their precise grip.
The 11" (280mm) blade is curved to give maximum cutting ability with minimum effort. The back is broad and gives it perfect balance. The blade is hand ground with great precision to a razor edge that is easily maintained. Near to the hilt the blade is ideal for close carving or feathering wood. The weight of the blade is carried to the end and is perfectly balanced with the angled grip to effortlessly chop wood. Finally the double-edged point to the blade gives it good digging capability and is excellent for skinning and scraping hides.
The 1075 Carbon Steel (CS80) has been selected to take shock and bend rather than snap. The blade is hardened to HRC 54 from the front cutting edge backwards. This ensures it holds a keen edge that can be sharpened in the field but which leaves the main body of the blade ductile enough to bend rather than snap minimizing any risk of being left in the wilderness with a broken knife.
The uniquely designed Cordura safety sheath that comes as standard not only protects the knife but keeps it secure and ensures that when the knife is drawn the hands are well away from the edge and clear of danger.
The blade of the Lofty survival tool can be specified with either a natural steel finish or with a black Fluoralon coating. The coated blade resists corrosion better in environments with salt air or when it may come into contact with salt water. To maintain this knife at it's best, the blade should be dried after use and lightly oiled before being stored for any period of time.
