I’m making these new knives personally one at a time. They will be made to order with sizing specifics determined by you the customer. They are flame-colored stainless steel. The knurling has the best grip of any knives I’ve ever used, especially the ones with the annular rings. The yoke has two bearings for stability and is very smooth. My blades are made of D2 blade steel. For the time being, I am selling these with a blade at the same price ($160.00, $10.00 shipping included) as my regular knives as found here on my Red Ox Brand website. These new knives differ from those in the shop here. To order one I just need an email address, shipping address, and phone number, to send an invoice That you will be able to securely pay online.
Please specify the barrel length and diameter that you would like for your knife. The three in these pictures are 7/16″. Other choices are, 3/8″, 1/2″, 9/16″, and 5/8″.
To determine the length of the barrel that you want, study the picture to the right. You need to measure your current knife from the yoke saddle to the end of the barrel without a blade. Then, decide how much adjustment you want the new knife to have beyond the top end of the barrel. The knife can be made with the barrel top right below the yoke, or you can choose to have some adjustment room to set it shorter if needed. All knives are able to be set longer than the chosen barrel length.
To order a knife I specifically need the barrel length that you decide upon and the barrel diameter.
The picture at the far right illustrates a method that has proven particularly good for determining a swivel knife’s length based on hand size. It might be a good idea to try this with a knife that you currently use before measuring for your new knife.
I’m very excited about these unique knives and appreciate the opportunity to make them available to you.
