Hickory has a reputation of being one of the "higher end woods." True or not, the wood is a classic and always seems to be the choice of exceptional wood finishing. It is one of the more difficult woods to work with because of its hardness. When I finish this knife, I have a special respect for its quality. Boards with contrasting heartwood and sapwood create a somewhat rustic appearance that’s sometimes marketed as Calico Hickory.

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.
