Hand - made blades forged in Zimbabwe and finished in Perth, Western Australia by Rhodesian Army Veterans. Each blade is completely different and made from scratch. The handles are finished off in Ebony, Rosewood, Buffalo Black Horn, Bone and Olive Wood.
The 100% leather sheath is hand stitched with the RKC logo laser etched into the sheath and blade. Some blades are one offs and each blade has it's own spirit. The spirit of the Shona is woven into the fabric and folds of over 160 to 256 folds of 1095 and 15N20 Steels in Damascus Forging. The hardness is rated at 58 to 63 HRC.
Each blade type is made in a triplet named from the places the steel is mined.
Please note that Damascus steel has smaller intricacies and imperfections in the hand forged steel. The blades are working blades designed on the specs used by our grandfather and carried by him for over 35 years.
*The greatest care is put into each blade there are minor imperfections in some of the blades due to the hand forging process. We love these imperfections as it makes each blade unique. We sharpen every blade to industry standard. Please use wet whetstones to sharpen your blade. Store blades with blade oil or a coat of WD40.
