Riptide Skinner Knife; Twist Damascus Blade, Olive Burl and Resin Handle

Riptide Skinner Knife; Twist Damascus Blade, Olive Burl and Resin Handle

$85.00



Like its namesake, this Riptide skinner knife is beautiful and deadly, with a twist damascus blade and one of a kind mixed handles. The ocean blue resin blends softly with the sand color olive wood, invoking memories of that time you were cutting limes for margaritas on your private island in the Caribbean. Or maybe just for a few beers in your tiny apartment in Cleveland. But this full tang damascus steel knife is awesome all the same! These are truly unique, and every one is entirely different. There will be variations in the damascus pattern and resin/wood handles, and you may not get one from the pictures. Enjoy the surprise!

Leather sheath included.

Disclaimer: It's a knife. It's sharp. Be careful. You can't​ play your surprise tuba solo at your daughter's wedding while missing fingers! You assume all responsibility for safe use upon receipt.

*LImes are acidic and can stain the blade. No big deal, just a heads up!

BLADE CARE:
1085 high carbon and Damascus Steel are great at holding an edge, but will rust and stain if not taken care of properly. Please clean and dry your blade after use, and apply a light coat of oil (gun oil, coconut oil, canola...almost any clear oil) in order to protect the blade and add longevity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

1085 high carbon and damascus steel will hold an edge very well, but they are not stainless steel. It may take on color with lots of use, and should be dried and oiled, if possible, to prevent rust. If you do get some rust, I prefer giving it a quick rub with a very fine (000) steel wool and it usually easily takes care of it without scratching the metal.

I wouldn't go chipping away at rocks, but they're pretty tough and should last you a long time!

Corporate Gifts or Awards

These are usually orders of 15+. We can do almost any amount given enough time.

You can engrave names or logos on the handles. You can replace my AIM logo with your own etched into the blade, or we can make a custom metal stamp of your logo for the leather sheaths.

Just remember, these are custom made and hand crafted, so we need months, not weeks. The more customized, the more time we need! They look ridiculously awesome, so bring it on!

Custom and personalized orders

Yes. Oh, you want to know more? Just send me a note to discuss your ideas!

Notes:
-ENGRAVING goes on the wood handles. It's a laser engraver, so burning the image in. It can do fairly detailed images, even your drawn pictures and handwriting. Be creative! Engraving has a quick turn around.

-ETCHING goes on the metal. It looks great on the polished metal, but can be hard to see on the damascus. This needs to be less detailed. Think words, numbers, basic designs. WE ONLY DO THIS FOR LARGE ORDERS (10+). This takes time.

We will do full custom jobs for larger orders, including blade designs, handle materials, custom deep etched logos (instead of the AIM), custom leather stamps on the sheath, etc. Your gifts can be awesome!
