A short presentation of the fine handmade Strassburger knives.
 

Because the limited custom production our knives are not available in store's chains or big resellers. Our target is quality and not quantity. We don't keep knives in stock. We will deliver directly to the final costumer, made-by-order, scheduling the work and delivery date.

Also, as it is not a line of industrial production, the knives never have the same exact final termination and appearance when comparing accurately one to another side-by-side.

  However the blades are perfectly identical, that doesn't occur with the handles.

That's because the natural and original forms and inherent characteristics of the noble materials using to make the handles, so as buffalo horn, bone and hard wood roots.The natural original forms of such material are the conditions that will determine the final artistic results and a life time durability.

THE OLD GERMAN COLONIAL STYLE

The "all purpose knife", used for the daily work by the pioneers German immigrants. For hunting, kitchen and also as a defense weapon.

THE BLADE
NOBLE MATERIALS USED IN THE KNIFE HANDLE REQUIRES A SUPERB STELL FOR THE BLADE.
Only the best High Carbon Steel, imported from Germany is used. This high quality steel holds a long time tremendous edge and can easily be re-sharpened.
Also the "Inox" - Stainless Steel is a special high quality material. There are all certificated by our provider from Germany, the Thyssen Krupp Company.

Fire-pot forge, two-horned anvil and hammer are the basic tools used for the forging and treatment of the blades. Only a small amount of modern hand tools are used.

Forging and tempering is done under ancient techniques, brought from Germany by the pioneer immigrants coming to United States and South Brazil.




Some very special tempering techniques and knowledge are keeping under the Strassburger Family since 1860 and are transmitted generation to generation.

There are two models of blades (Short and Long)
as you can see on this picture:

THE HANDLE
To give to the handle the best quality and beauty, only fine handcrafted noble materials are used so as
Buffalo Horn, Buffalo Bone and an extreme hard Brazilian wood, the root of "Muiracatiara"
- (Astronium Lecointei). With these three components a variety of combinations are done.
You will see below the possibilities of these combinations.

 


As standard the blade are delivered in High Carbon Steel but if the preference
is for Stainless Steel Blade, it may be ordered at the same price.



HornBone-TwistedBoneTwistedBone-BoneHorn

 

The "twisted" effect on the handle, beyond the artistic finishing, gives great hand firmness on holding the knife.

At the right side
the smooth
handle models



Horn-BoneBoneBone-Horn

 

Those effects, before final polishing, are carefully carved on the materials, such as Buffalo Bone and Buffalo Horn.
W = Wood
B =
Buffalo BONE
H =
Buffalo HORN




Buffalo horn is an extra hard material and after polishing it results in a pretty black shining appearance.



The combination with the hard and beautiful "Muiracatiara" wood, (Astronium Lecointei), carefully treated and polished looks very nice.

Leather Sheaths
Each knife will be delivered with a beautiful custom leather sheath.
The sheaths are entirely handmade and hand sewn. Are made from selected cowhide, tanned with proper natural vegetables, given the real appearance of wild strong leather. Has a very high quality and resistance, with its natural brown color. The proper and little irregularities of leather are keeping in order to maintain its characteristics.
