Right from the outset, the Raven PK1 Bushcraft Knife was conceived as a bespoke product.
Even though the initial knife specification was dubbed the “standard model”, Simon was keen that his customers didn’t feel that they were restricted to a one-size-fits-all product.
When the PK1 Knife was first launched, Simon Fearnamm of Raven Armoury offered various indicative options but really wanted potential purchasers to understand that “anything goes”. The only real proviso was that it was worth bearing in mind that custom work often adds a little time to production.
These knives are not a stock product or mass produced. They are hand made to Raven’s exacting standards and can be produced longer, shorter, fatter or thinner. Raven Armoury also offer the blades in different steels and a multitude of options for materials for both the grips and fittings.
We are already starting to see the results of bespoke customisations, specified by clients. The above O-1 steel-bladed knife was such a bespoke order, recently received by a customer. This stunning version of the knife has ivory micarta scales and red liners.
We’re really looking forward to seeing what other versions are devised.
