A S Harding Knives

Custom made Knives

​​​Leather Work

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.  

About Me

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.

Handmade Bush craft Knives and Leather Work 


This is one of my Skookum style bushcraft knives and it feels very well balanced and comfortable.

It is made with 4mm 01 carbon steel that has been hardened to 59 Rockwell with a scandi grind.

​This knife is scary sharp too.

I have cut a vine pattern into the spine.

The handle is made with green Micarta with black fiber liners.

There are Brass Loveless bolts and brass lanyard tube.   The blade is 4 1/4 inches long and the handle is 4 1/2.

The sheath is completely hand stitched and I have decorated it with a bit of a woodland theme.

My first love was bushcraft and I am out using and developing my knives weekly. I firmly believe that my knives are the better for it after all I know first hand what works, what doesn't and what I want to change.
