Description: When I recently visited Mastersmiths Kevin and Heather Harvey at their home in Belfast, South Africa, I was very pleased to see that had some of their knives available. Kevin and Heather teach bladesmithing courses, with students travelling from all over the world to learn their techniques. When I visited, they were teaching a six person, two week introduction to bladesmithing course -- with students coming from as far away as the Middle East. Kevin uses the Heavin Forge mark on his knives when he creates a knife while demonstrating for his classes. This is one such knife.
The 4.7 inch drop point blade was forged to shape from Bohler K460 carbon steel (similar to O1 carbon steel). It was forged closely to shape, ensuring a keen, long lasting edge. A differential heat treatment creates a knife with a strong edge, supported by the resilience of a softer spine. Kevin heat treated this knife using a traditional Japanese clay zone heat treatment. The undulating heat treatment line is called a hamon.
The handle is made from wild olive wood (Olea europeae sub sp. Africana). Wild olive wood has a hard, dense timber and is tremendously resilient -- exactly what we would hope for in a knife handle. The buttery yellow wood has a dramatic, swirling figure with a nice mix of light and dark tones. The handle is nicely rounded for a secure, comfortable grip.
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched, embossed cowhide sheath.
