The Whiskey Burr is small all-around camp knife. It can be stowed in a pack, pocket or worn as a convenient necker. As can be seen, it lacks traditional handle scales. The predrilled holes allow for the addition of handle scales if desired and also allow for the user to paracord wrap the handle as well.

THE STEEL: A36CARB
These knives knives begin as tough A36 Steel, which are forged and ground. The blade is then sent for a state of the art heat treatment, which, over a period of twelve hours, produces a deep layer of high carbon tool steel that forms an incredible cutting edge (58-59 RC) while retaining extreme core toughness (35 RC).
The Burr has a Hollow Ground Single Bevel edge. The grinds/bevels are asymmetrical, designed specifically to produce a thinner modified single bevel cutting tool. The edge is micro-beveled and ceramic honed. See sharpening suggestions below.

CARE & MAINTENANCE
This hand-crafted, high carbon steel blade has been hand-polished, and razor sharpened. It is also coated with a thin layer of paste wax for protection. As the knife ages, it will develop a beautiful patina across the finish. Keeping the blade dry and waxed will keep it in top-notch condition for years to come.
The leather sheaths will benefit from a biannual treatment with leather conditioner. Any variety will work well.
