New Marking and Carving Knives

Mora knife
The Shelter staff recently traveled to the Common Ground Fair in Unity, Maine, and two tools our customers frequently requested were carving knives and marking knives.

We now carry two new carving knives. The Mora knives by Eric Frost are made in Sweden with laminated steel. They have a Rockwell hardness of about 62 and they come razor sharp. The 2.5-inch blade model has an overall length of about 7 inches, and the 3-inch blade model has an overall length of about 7.5 inches.

Each knife has a rubbed oil birch handle and comes with a plastic sheath that can be attached to a belt. They're ideal for carving, marking, whittling and more. This is a knife to last a lifetime.

Gladstone knife
We're also carrying a marking knife made by Gladstone. This is a marking knife that we all likeno LOVEincluding the price (just $11). This Gladstone knife has a double-beveled blade on one side so you can use it left or right handed as you layout your joints. The rosewood handle is nicely shaped, so it is easy to hold the knife like a knife or like a pencil. The overall length is 7inches, and the blade length is 1.5 inches.
