Many times referred to as "flame" birch, cuirly red birch
heartwood tends to be a light reddish brown, with nearly white sapwood. Occasionally figured pieces are available with a wide, shallow curl similar to the curl found in Cherry. Generally easy to work with hand and machine tools, though boards with wild grain can cause grain tearout during machining operations. Turns, glues, and finishes well.
Three blades available:
(1) A 7.25" heat treated hardened stainless steel, polished mirror finished blade with upper cutting edge;
(2) A 7.25" single edge heat treated hardened stainless steel, polished mirror finished blade;
(3) A 6.75" single edge heat treated hardened stainless steel, polished mirror finished blade. BE SURE TO INDICATE BLADE TYPE #1, #2, or #3 WHEN ORDERING!

I was told by a long-standing customer that his 7-year-old knife was, "like new." I asked, "How can that be?" He said, "Because I take care of it!" So, I encourage three things; (1) it is sharpened. You keep it HONED! (2) Blade is friction fit (channeled) in the sheath. Reinsert the blade in same spot you extracted it. (3) A little mild soap and water, rinse, and wipe dry.
