Survival Knife from William Whiteley
The Cutting Edge of Sharpness
When in search of a solid, all-around knife…one purposefully built yet humble in form and character, this one got our attention. And, since it’s built right down the alley from our friend, Mr. Ray Smith, in Sheffield, England who builds our magnificent pewter flasks, we decided to take a closer look. So that we did and here we now are, presenting to you without prejudice, one of the finest utilities we’ve ever encountered, built by one of the world’s most remarkable maker of all things sharp, the William Whiteley & Sons Company.
Our Whiteley Survival Knife is handcrafted in Sheffield from CS80 Carbon Steel, often referred to as Spring Steel and widely used in many industries including knives and swords. Spring steel provides excellent edge retention and durability, meaning the Whiteley Survival Knife has been designed and built to last whatever you throw at it, and conversely, whatever you throw it at. The blade is Teflon coated making it more resistant to wear and corrosion.
The bespoke handle is made from black Micarta, which not only looks the part, but is exceedingly strong thanks to its composite properties. The Whiteley Survival Knife comes complete with a heavy-duty, 1000 Denier Cordura sheath, manufactured by Blackhawk USA, one of the world’s premier producers of survival equipment.
Looks sharp…is sharp…and stays that way.
