The response to the Raven PK1 Knife has been overwhelmingly positive. If you've been dreaming about getting your hands on one of these exquisitely hand-crafted tools, here is an opportunity to win one.

The materials specification is as below:

  • Blade: O-1 Precision Ground to 3/16 stock
  • Hardness: 58-59RC

The PK1 knife is hand-made by Simon Fearnhamm and his small team of craftsmen at the Raven Armoury. Their work is known amongst sword and knife aficionados as some of the finest available. Indeed Simon was originally recommended to Paul Kirtley as "probably the most skilled sword and knife maker on these islands."
