Robert Herder 'Lierenaar' Pocket Knife
This product is currently sold out.
This pocket knife is a replica of an 18th century rustic working knife in the Belgium city of Lier. It's utilitarian nature made it the ideal bring along for both field and forest: cutting cheese and bread for a farmer's lunch or scraping bark for a quick fire to even cleaning the hooves of horses.
The handle is rather angular, slightly coarse, and made of untreated beech wood. The fixing spring, made of iron, keeps the blade in place with the help of a snap-in hole: a simple, yet exceptional mechanism. Of course the blade is made of non stainless carbon steel, hardened to 58 HRC (Rockwell). It is manufactured in Solingen dry fine grinding, fine glazed and incredibly strong, despite its thiness. The broad form, with the long and slimcutting angle makes it extremely sharp and favours the high edge holding ability.
Beechwood handle, brass rivets and Carbon fine-glazed blade.
Blade length 92 mm / 3.5 in
Overall length 205 mm / 8.1 in
