The Camp-Lore Series was developed to answer the demand for traditional, basic, bushcraft knives. The designers of this knife series come from unique backgrounds and experiences, with each considered to be one of the best in their field. All of the Camp-Lore knives are simple, traditional, fixed blade designs that have been field-proven for years. Keeping with that simplistic approach, ESEE builds the Camp-Lore line in the USA utilizing 1095 uncoated carbon steel blades and removable Micarta handles which allows the user to apply a traditional patina to the blade without the need for removing a blade coating. Each Camp-Lore knife comes with a USA made traditional pouch sheath using leather supplied by one of the oldest tanneries in North America.
The JG3 model designed by James Gibson is the knife for you if you prefer a svelte, more compact cutting tool. The 3.5" drop point blade is flat ground per James' specification to give you a very nice slicing blade. The ergonomic Micarta handle is a typical Gibson shape, thin near the choil for a precise grip with belly in the middle for comfort around the other fingers. As with any bushcrafting design, there are no hot spots on the handle so you can use this knife for hours without fatigue. James recommends you strop the knife with a leather strop and compound as often as possible (daily if you can) to prolong the edge of the knife. Includes a leather drop sheath.
