The Gentleman

The gentleman's knife is a small, very light and elegant knife that works well on the desk or in the restaurant, but can also be worn as an EDC.
The blade length is about 75mm - 85mm.
The gentleman's knife has a soldered hand guard made of brass, ship's bronze, iron or nickel silver.
The handle consists of several layers of vulcanized fiber, aluminium, copper, micarta, mammoth ivory, buffalo horn - there are unlimited possibilities for individual design.
Under this arrangement, buffalo horn, mammoth ivory or precious wood is used as the handle material.

I also build the gentleman's knife with a Wharncliffe blade. This is very practical for daily work and also for carving.
This blade shape was devised by Lord Wharncliffe (James Archibald Stuart Wortley Mackenzie) around 1820. The idea was to invent a very strong yet sharp blade for woodwork. Lord Wharncliffe was patron of the company Joseph Rogers & Son, which shortly thereafter began making these knives.
