*Please note: The WHISKEY BONELICK does not come with a wooden gift box like the full size Whiskey Knives, but does come packaged in a very nice thick cotton canvas logo drawstring bag.
The Whiskey Bonelick is designed to be either an EDC Camp Knife or a dedicated Food Prep Field Knife. It's perfect for small foraging kits, but can also be worn as a necker or used as a pocket sheath knife with the paracord lanyard removed. This is the Whiskey version of a traditional bird and trout knife, with the versatility of an all-around camp blade.

OUR STEEL: A36CARB
Our 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 Bonelick 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.
INCLUDED WITH SALE
Leather Voyager Sheath: Exquisite hand-crafted leather sheath treated with a proprietary mix of leather dye, neatsfoot oil and a splash of whiskey. Each sheath is sewn with top-of-the-line heavy duty red waxed cord for durability. All rivets and screws used are of high quality. Sheath includes adjustable lumberjack paracord neck lanyard, which can easily be removed to convert the Bonelick to a pocket sized sheath knife.
CARE & MAINTENANCE
All carbon steel knives are susceptible to rust. Our Whiskey Knives are no different. It is recommended to oil your blade after each use in the field. I (CR///EK) have always used mineral oil and it has worked just fine. If any rust occurs on the blade while in storage, steel wool can be used to brush it off.
Our leather sheaths will benefit from a biannual treatment with leather conditioner. Any variety will work well. We offer a small tin of Saddle Soap and also Mutton Tallow for sale and each of these products work well when treating and protecting leather.
Your knife has an asymmetrical beveled edge (think Samurai sword). You won't notice it with the naked eye but it is there. You will achieve the sharpest edge by only sharpening the side of the blade which has my logo stamped. I prefer to use a rod-style diamond or ceramic sharpener for this task but many varieties of bench stones will work as well.
Like everything I offer for sale, I will stand by my Whiskey Knives for as long as I'm alive. If your knife ever fails you for any reason or if you just decide you don't like it, simply email us at email@example.com and we will either send you a replacement or refund your money.
