A little goes a long way.  This is the larger of our two Bushcrafter’s Balm versions – 1 oz tin.  If you want to try a smaller version, we’ve also got a smaller quarter oz tin available in our shop, as well.

Details

This is our Marine Spike (MRS) and we just call it “the Missus.” This is our bushcraft take on the traditional marline spike. We incorporated ridged corners and outside edges for better use out in the bush. (Disclaimer: This is not a professional climbing/rigging tool. This is made for bushcraft use.)

Made of 80CRV2 and comes in at HRC 60+.  Our spikes get placed through the same heat-treat process as a knife, full heat-treat and tempering cycles.  There’s a handle wrap for texture on the non-business end and (of course) a bio-resin seal under the wrap to help prevent any rusting.

All spikes come with a custom cap to protect the point.  It’s made from thick high pressure fuel line, the end is closed with an eyelet and tied with a dummy cord.  It designed to fit tight under all conditions and will loosen up slightly with use. Every cap comes with a piece of oil coated felt fabric that’s packed into the cap base to protect the tip form moisture.  Our products are made with quality goods that are also readily available to ensure easy replacement in the field, if needed.

The MRS is good for ropes and knots, works as a universal awl, carpenter scribe, a knife hone and hanger nail.  This splits up wood for kindling better than a wedge.  If you don’t believe me, ask a wood pecker.  You can get more uses from a well heat-treated spike, at half the weight.  One thing I learned while growing up in the country, the easiest way to skin a catfish or a snake (or slippery sucker) is to nail them to a log or to a tree.  This is just the tool for the job.

Sheath (for 4” & 5” blades)

Thanks to the great work of JRE Indsutries, these sheaths are durable and beautiful.  All models are full grain leather.  These are not one-size-fits-all sheaths – they are custom made to fit exactly each model.  Please note these are deep leather pouches and they do not have a static belt loop.

Available for: KD4, KD5, SP4, SP5.

Key Features:

  • Custom Designed
  • Full Grain Leather
  • Lash Points
  • Eyelets

We created a no-snag deep leather pouch by removing the loop, so it can easily slip in and out of any pocket – be it pants, coat or backpack – for an easy and convenient carry.  The deep pouch style is tight enough and deep enough to hold the blade in place without the need of cumbersome retention devices.  It is a sleek, yet old fashioned, design that is still useful in the field today.

Out in the bush, I noticed that my blade always migrated to my outer most pockets, especially when outer layers were being worn.  We designed the deep pouch to provide a snug fit and purposely added multiple lashing points for alternative carrying options, lanyards, and loops should you find the need.

**Dimensions below are for the 4 inch blade pouch and the 5 inch blades will be slightly larger.

Utility Wax™

Utility Wax was created to provide the same protection benefits of Bushcrafter’s Balm, but without the medicinal properties provided by tea tree oil.  There is no sense in wasting tea tree oil on things like a squeaky sliding drawer or my favorite leather sheath.

Lubricate – Protect – Soften – Seal – Waterproof – Moisturize

Here’s a few more examples of how to use:

  • Seals and protects leather sheaths (Check our video tutorial!)
  • Long lasting moisture barrier for your blade
  • Waterproof cloth and shoes
  • Lube and protect zippers and snaps closures  (keep them from rusting!)
  • Moisturize dry skin
  • Works as a stand-in boot polish
  • Lube hard-to-open jar lids
  • And more…. all while being completely non-toxic, food grade and safe to use.
