“The BonePicker” is super compact and razor sharp. Comes with a kydex necklace sheath. Great for the pocket, glovebox, purse, or even a boot!
This Custom blade is available in 80CRV2 with a low grit knapped finish and dark etch. Comes in 1/8 inch thick stock. Heat treated to 62-63 HRC to increase edge holding while maintaining ease sharpening. 6.5 inches overall with a 2.5 inch cutting edge.
With proper care this knife is intended to be used for a lifetime, I take great care to ensure my materials and craftsmanship are first rate.

My 80CRV2 HEAT TREAT
I thermal cycle all my 80CRV2 to reduce the grain size as small as possible and evenly distribute the alloying components. This drastically increases the toughness and overall quality of the steel. These steps unlock the potential of 80CRV2, it is able to reach nearly the hardness and edge retention of 1095 and W2 but is much tougher. I quench my 80CRV2 blades in fast oil for maximum hardness. Models are tempered down to between 57 – 63 HRC depending on their intended use.
