Whaler’s Locker is proud to offer beautiful hand scrimmed art work by local Maui artist Doug Fine on a Silver Stag Small Notch Folder knife. This is a one-of-a-kind collector’s piece sold exclusively through Whaler’s Locker website. Scrimshaw, the delicate art of carving designs into a piece of smooth ivory or bone, originated on New England whaling ships as sailors tried to pass the time.
The Silver Stag Smith Small Notch Folder is 100% Made in USA and features a D2 high carbon tool steel with a shed whitetail deer antler handle.
The knife measures 7 3/4” unfolded and approximately 4 1/4” closed. The blade is 3 1/4” in length and weighs 4oz. Due to the high carbon in the D2 tool steel we recommend oiling the blade after heavy use, or at least a few times a year even if kept as collector piece.
About Silver Stag
“FOLDING SERIES – SILVER STAG customer feedback and reviews on our folder models has been exceptional. We craft all the blades from D2 High Carbon Tool steel. The blades are double disc ground, heat treated to a 62 Rockwell hardness, and then hand polished and sharpened to a razor edge. We hand craft and incorporate north American antler into each finished knife. We even designed the adjustable military grade stainless steel tension pivot pin so each end user can adjust the open and close tension to their preference.”
”For over 20 years SILVER STAG has stayed true to the key attributes that turned a garage-based hobby into a nationally respected brand. We have continuously designed and manufactured our own products, under our own roof, and done so primarily by hand.
We take immense pride in the practicality, durability, and the finish details that make every SILVER STAG have its own unique character and beauty. SILVER STAG knives are primarily handmade, and we only use domestic raw materials in each functional design. We will never sacrifice quality for quantity and our reputation is contingent upon your satisfaction. SILVER STAG Knives are an exceptional value, and we back up our work with the best warranty in the industry. We also provide the best customer service we can. Thank you for your interest in SILVER STAG and American manufacturing!
• We design and manufacture our exclusive blade designs with exceptional High Carbon Tool Steels (Primarily D2, 1095, and hand forged authentic Damascus.)
