A lot goes into creating a premium quality, hand-crafted knife. American crafstmen build each Nordsmith knife by hand using only the best materials.


AEB-L is a stainless steel with an extremely fine grain structure. It sharpens easily and with its excellent toughness and edge retention, it is an outstanding choice for an outdoors knife when corrosion resistance is a priority. Find out more about this steel here.


Canvas Micarta is an ideal material for knife handles. When dry, it is smooth and free of hot spots. Then, when wet, the material actually becomes slightly grippier. It will not shrink or crack like wood and is tough enough to withstand the rigors of outdoor use.


Leather has been the preferred sheath material of serious outdoorsman for centuries. Our leather sheaths are handmade in the USA using the best quality hide available.
