As the name indicates, this knife is patterned after the drawing in George Washington Sears’ book, Woodcraft and Camping. This knife will perform the basic functions required for day-to-day living, and has advantages all its own–especially in food preparation.

The saw steel in these blades is a high nickle alloy, similar to L6. It takes a very fine edge, is very resilient, and has outstanding wear resistance. A leather strop is particularly helpful in polishing off the very flexible “feather edge” that forms when sharpening this steel.

As of the Spring of 2007, all handles have lanyard holes.
