A S Harding Knives
Custom made Knives
My leather work is all hand created. I have wrestled in the past with doing some of it on a machine, especially when I first started and my fingers were sore. Now with fingers like leather themselves I'm glad I persevered because I'm proud of each item I create.
I have been wandering around the wilderness since I was a child. I found the love of solitude and closeness to nature grew as I did and I found a deep yearning for outdoor life and work. I have always carried a knife and as I became more experienced I found I wanted to have one which I had made and designed, which fitted my needs as an outdoorsman. I made and tested many knife designs until I settled on the traditional bushcraft shape I make today. This doesn't mean I don't continue to change and add new ideas, as I use my knives constantly I find small changes I can make that will make handling and using them a pleasure. I also think they should last a lifetime and look good; I have just inherited a knife I made for my father over 10 years ago and it's still a beautiful knife that I can still get a razor sharp edge on. I want everyone who buys one of my knives to get the same pleasure and satisfaction from using them as I do.
