Woodsman is a term often associated with mountain men, frontier explorers, and homesteaders. And what better way to honor their adventures and achievements than to name this gorgeous Damascus steel knife after them.
Woodsman lived, and continued to live, hard and difficult lives. This Damascus steel knife is made in the tracker style, with long sweeping blade, robust handle with finger grooves to give you a secure hold. A chiseled spine is a perfect place for your thumb and gives you added leverage over the blade. Weighing in at almost 12 ounces, this is a solid knife and feels great in your hand. The spine is over 5mm thick, which would make it a great choice as a chopper. A 5” blade is the perfect blend between a long life and easy to carry knife. Also adorning this bone handle is the custom hand burning. Each knife handle is hand burnt to give it a very unique woodsman look and feel. Four brass tubes are used to secure the handle and full tang blade and then hand polished to a high-sheen.
Made of 1095 and 15n20 steels, the high carbon content of 1095 gives this knife an extremely sharp and durable edge and makes it the ideal choice for a knife that is going to see heavy use. The large blade won’t let you down when the work gets tough and the ergonomic, finger grooved handle will give you exceptional control.
Whether you are a hunter, survivalist, a cowboy, or an adventurer, this is the perfect choice for the discerning collector.

About Forseti Steel:
The secret to forging authentic Damascus steel knives has long been lost, but Forseti Steel stays as true to the tradition as they can by commissioning smiths with Damascus ancestry to hand-make all of their blades. The artists behind the enamoring water-like patterns of folded and pounded steel have all learned their skills and techniques from the generations that worked the metals before them.
In addition to paying tribute to the Damascus practice in technique and appearance, Forseti Steel shows its respect for history's heroes, legends, and characters with their knives' names. The 9", walnut-handled Sentinel, for example, honors the Sentinels who stand guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington.
