The Oar Carver knives were designed by Ross Oar and are manufactured in the USA by Queen Cutlery. Queen Cutlery discontinued business in January, 2018. We have limited stock on all items shown in these departments.
Single lockers are have a single blade which locks in place while open. Blade size is 1 1/2 inches. Handle size is 3 3/4 inches.Stag Bone handles are made from the shin bone of cattle.
Oar Carving Knives supplied by Stadtlander Woodcarvings are available with either a Factory Edge or an Extra Sharp edge. The factory does their best to provide a sharp edge but inevitably this is a mass production effort. It is recommended that knives purchased in the Factory Edge condition are sharpened prior to using. Knives purchased in the Extra Sharp condition have been pre-sharpened by an experienced woodcarver and are ready to use for woodcarving.
All blades are made from D2 tool steel (high carbon, high chromium), which has excellent edge holding properties and all knives are custom made for woodcarving.
