The Hobo Knife $150 CAD
This multi-functional utensil is handcrafted by the highly-renowned knife-makers W.R.Case & Sons and is assembled using Chromium-vanadium (CV) steel and 200-year-old reclaimed river wood.
- The utensils are made with Chromium-vanadium (CV) steel which is a special formula of alloyed cutlery steel known for its ease of re-sharpening.
- 3-piece design that can be separated into a knife, a fork and a spoon
- The knife also offers a bottle/tin opener for meals on the move
- The reclaimed river wood originated from timbers harvested during the great logging booms of the late 18th and 19th centuries and was recovered from the rivers of Kentucky. These logs have been preserved by deep, cold water and the absence of light and oxygen for more than 200 years

Re-sharpening Your Knife
Blades are honed at an inclusive angle of 35” - 45” from the factory. Maintaining a constant angle, hold the blade 17” - 22” from the surface of a sharpening stone and stroke the blade as if shaving a thin layer from the stone. Repeat the stroking motion along the entire edge of the blade starting at the blade heel and working to the tip. Turn the blade over and repeat the process.
Cleaning Blades and Handles
Apply a small drop of oil in the joints of your knife and a small amount of oil on a clean, soft rag or cloth. Then, wipe down the blades and handles with the soft cloth. The inside of the knife can be cleaned with the cotton-tipped swabs and wooden toothpicks. Take special care when using pipe cleaners to avoid scratching the surface with their wire core. Toothpicks or toothbrushes can be used to clean out the crevices in the jigging and other small areas where gunk can accumulate.
For General cleaning please use a mild, bio-degradable soap and clean cloth. Using warm water clean off your blade/utensils and dry immediately.
