Nordsmith Canteen Knife 5.59" AEB-L Fixed Blade, Green Micarta Handles with Yellow Liners, Leather Sheath - CAN-AEBL-GR/YL-R
NSCANAEBLGRYLR: Canteen Knife, Green Micarta with Yellow Liners
A camp knife that is at home in the kitchen, the USA-made Nordsmith Canteen Knife delivers cutting performance no matter where you are. Envisioned by Founder David C. Andersen, this handcrafted blade was designed to make quick work of any camp or culinary task. Whether you are carving wood or carving turkey, the Canteen Knife delivers.
The broad, Nessmuk-inspired blade with high, flat grind offers enough clearance to make rocking chops on a cutting board, but is still agile enough for fine woodworking. AEB-L steel provides fantastic toughness and edge stability in a stainless steel that holds a great edge without much effort required in sharpening.
The versatile blade allows for use in many different environments. In addition to campers and cooks, the Canteen Knife has found its way into the hands of overlanders, hunters, survivalists, and collectors too!
With handles made from canvas Micarta, the full tang Nordsmith Canteen Knife offers plenty of grip, even in wet conditions. A flared pommel allows the user to securely choke back on the handle for added leverage in chopping situations, working well on smaller branches or in the kitchen when using it as a meat cleaver. The tip of the knife also resides on the center axis with the pommel, making bushcraft easy when using the tip for drilling.
The Nordsmith Canteen Knife comes equipped with a black-dyed leather sheath made by JRE Industries, providing function, versatility, and style. It is equipped with a dangler attachment (allowing the sheath to be carried low or high on the belt) and a fire steel loop that will accommodate a 3/8" ferrocerium rod for fire-starting on the go.
All Nordsmith Knives are proudly designed and built by hand in the USA. Specs may vary slightly.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.
