Our first run of Shrikes has sold out but more is on the way. We are now accepting orders for the 2020 edition which features gorgeous birdseye maple with green maple liners. Knives will be ready to ship in late October 2019.
We aren't interested in cranking out a new knife every month just to sell product. When we produce a knife, it's because the design does a job, and does it better than anything else out there. Introducing the Shrike, our first new release in six years and Mike's finest design yet. This blade feels sleek, comfortable, and nimble in the hand like no other knife on the market today. The 1/8" thick O1 Tool Steel blade is 3.6" long with an overall length of 7.75" giving you lots of working edge and a narrow profile for turning easily in wood. The handle is supremely comfortable in all bushcraft grips and sports our signature thumb ramp. Like all our knives, the Shrike features a scandi grind for a razor carving edge with maximum durability. It is then finished with a high polish which not only gives the blade a custom look but also dramatically increases the corrosion resistance.
While most sheaths these days are made from six ounce or thinner hides,
the Shrike comes standard with a handmade sheath of ten ounce leather from Moss Custom Leather that looks and feels like a fitted gun holster. Each sheath is custom fitted and also features a small pocket behind the belt loop containing a Navigational Survival Magnet.
This knife's namesake is a small but ferocious bird that is famous for impaling its prey on thorns or barbed wire.
