The LEDC – Lady’s Every Day Carry

ledc

This series has come about by interpreting the market trend towards a “Non-intimidating” EDC (Every Day Carry) for women. Everyone, including women, should have personal protection on them but many ladies are hesitant to carry a gun. A knife is an excellent alternative. Having a knife on hand at all times is also handy when you are working around the property as well. You just never know when you’ll need one.

The blade is 2 7/8″ in cutting edge length and is made of D2 High Carbon Tool Steel. Although it is somewhat harder to work with, I must say that I am pleased with the edge I was able to get. It holds it’s edge well and is easy to ‘Field sharpen’. I think you will be pleased with it as a handy LEDC.

Each knife in this series is one-of-a-kind custom made with a customized handmade sheath.

The knife pictured here is the prototype for the series. The blade is brushed D2 High Carbon Tool Steel. The liner is black G-10 resin impregnated fiber. The handle is oak and the bolster and pins are brushed copper. The sheath is handmade of leather, stamped design and laced with artificial sinew.

All knives in this series are for sale at $125.00 (Price includes knife, sheath and shipping) unless it is marked sold. If there is a knife you like and it has been sold, let me know and I will see if I have the woods necessary to recreate it. However, keep in mind no two knives can ever be exactly alike.

The Scalliwag – A Lady’s Purse Carry

scalliwag

Every lady needs a little protection. Many are hesitant to carry a gun. A knife is an excellent alternative!

This knife is a custom build for an amazing woman we dearly love. (The pattern will be available for others but I don’t plan to mass produce this model.) She is without a doubt the most truly Christian person we have ever met. At the same time she is a realist and a bit of a survivalist. She is perfectly capable of taking care of herself while she goes out into the community helping others.

The blade on this knife is full tang 416 fold Damascus heat treated to 58-60 RC so it is a strong blade as well as a beautiful one. There are 3 different steels (5160, 203E 52100, 15n20 for those of you who know steel) used to create this type of blade and it is so expensive it is sold by the inch, whereas most blade steel is sold by the foot. The blade is 2 1/2” flat ground and as already stated, full tang. It is 1/8” thick and 11/16” wide.

The handle is truly special! It is olive wood imported from Bethlehem and comes with a certificate of authenticity. The liner is cinnamon resin impregnated fiber. It has a brass guard and pins.

The sheath is a bit different from most I have made. Since it is designed to be carried in a purse, it does not have a belt loop. It has a locking liner like all my sheaths, so the knife does not fall out, but instead of a belt loop, it has a snap closure.
