The Great Sharpy - Your Adventurer Buddy  
The Great Sharpy is the perfect companion for you. Why? Because it let's you be free of any worries in the middle of wildness. Allows you to reconnect with nature at any levels. His roots goes far in ancient Asia, where Damascus steel was used to create swords.


This is what Knife Informer tells us about Damascus steel: "Hence, Damascus steel is not pure. In fact, this uniqueness is its charm and its mystery. The material is characterized by multiple bands and mottling welded together in patterned fashion to create decorative blades of any shape and/or length with an inability to shatter. The identification of composites in original Damascus steel remains unknown today, as no records exist describing them. Yet modern Damascus steel-making follows the practice of combining pure metals, varying in terms of personal preference and need. Though metalworkers can choose and blend materials to form steel billets, iron is favored for its carbide-enhanced solidity and fortitude."

Have you ever noticed in your mountain trips that there were moments when you need something for cutting slivers for a fire or opening a can? If the answer is YES it means that you have to add a new item in your adventure backpack. You have to meet The Great Sharpy, a folding knife with a resistant Damascus blade.


Inspired by the well-known swords, our folding knife has a tough and resistant blade. As the swords, it is characterized by distinctive patterns of banding which reminds us of flowing water. The Damascus is created by hammering together 37 layers of steel with a strong core to make a powerful and handsome blade. Besides the authentic appearance The Great Sharpy is very comfortable in your hand because of his walnut wood handle. 

The main feature of The Great Sharpy is it's multi-functionality. Because of this you can use the folding knife in different situations. With it's durable handle you can split nuts or you can use the sharpness of the blade to cut the strings from the fishing rod.

 You can store it in the pocket of your jacket so you can find it when you are at the office and you just received a package. It can be used even in the kitchen to cut perfect slices for your favorite salad.   

 
The length blade is measured at 3.54 inch and it's made from Damascus steel. It is designed to turn the folding knife into a reliable cutting tool. The sharp edge is perfect for cutting perfect slices of cucumber, as well as resizing thick pieces of rope. 

Comparison of the costs
 In addition to durability features we choose the damascus steel because it reminds us of the knives our grandfathers had. Regarding that, we want to create a knife that is not only useful, but one that is meant to be special. 

  
Offered by the damascus blade we will include a leather cover which can be attached to your belt. The reason for which this cover is so unique is because of the braided edges and because of the special models that can be found on the leather. 

 


You can rest assured that the knife will not fall out of the support because it has a staple which you can use to secure the knife in it's place. 


Materials:  
Blade: Damascus Steel  
Handle: Walnut Wood

Risks and challenges

No project comes without its challenges. But we guarantee that we will solve all the problems that might occur.

Maybe it will seem strange to you that the amount of money we set up to raise for this project is pretty small, but we want to be sure that we will fulfill everything we planned for.

Besides the damascus knife you can receive a handmade pair of knitted gloves and because of that it may take some time to get in its possession. We want you to be rewarded for your efforts even if that means that you have to wait a little longer for your adventurer buddy and the handmade knitted gloves.

We work with a specialized factory to create the folding knife with a damascus blade so it could take time to start the process. In this case, the money we raise will help us have priority in the manufacturing operations.
