William Scagel was the father of 20th century cutlery. Every modern custom knife maker owes a debt of gratitude to the the man who pioneered high quality custom knives in the United States. His attention to detail, style and functionality are legendary.
When we took on the responsibility of making Scagel® knives, we were determined to carry Bill's commitment to both form and function.
Bill Scagel was a master at adapting traditional designs to his own end. We have done the same.
This knife takes a 3 3/4" Dogleg frame and adds a single blade - either a Clip or a Wharncliffe. The blades are made from superbly heat treated 1095 High Carbon Steel. The liners are steel. The Scagel® arrowhead shield is pinned in place like Scagel used to do.
These knives were made for us by Great Eastern Cutlery and then we shipped them all off to Bark River Knives to have them convex ground to make this knife a first rate user.
A Free Gift for You!
Because we really believe this knife should be a user, we are offering a free gift with every Fruitport pocket knife -- the new Scagel® PocketSlip (a $34.95 value).
