EVERETT NOEL || MAPLE BACKPACKERS KNIFE || #139
This knife would be perfect for taking on a camping or backpacking trip. It’s a bit larger then an “Everyday Carry” design and could be used for cutting kindling or other small pieces of wood out in the wilderness.
-1095 High Carbon Steel with worn patina
-Tan Sheath with Belt Loop
+All of Ev's knives are made of high carbon steel, which is heat treated for the best performance. His preferred steels are 1095, 1084, 80crv2, and old files, which I re-harden.
+The wood Everett uses is either from his parents Nevada County property, or scraps from local wood workers. After he receive the wood, it's shipped out to get stabilized so it is more durable, and will not soak up moisture.
+The sheaths are made out of vegetable tanned leather, which is molded to shape, stitched and dyed.
|| ABOUT EVERETT NOEL ||
My name is Everett Noel. I am 19 years old and have been making knives for the past six years. Last year I graduated from high school and took a break from school to make knives full time. I made a knife shop out of an old trailer and traveled around California making knives. Now I am back in school getting a BFA and I am continuing to make knives on the side.
I started making knives when I was 13 years old. I have always loved making things, and I wanted to find something I could keep making and focus on. I found a YouTube video on how to make a knife, and thought I would try it out. My first knife was terrible, but they kept getting better and after making a few I knew that I wanted to be a full time knife maker. Over the past six years I have been working on perfecting my product, and starting my business.
