Production Cowboy #517
Production Cowboys are are a fine example of an “all around knife”or an “EDC” (every day carry)
The Cowboy model, designed by Nick, is specifically formulated to be easy to carry and use.
With a 3-1/4” blade, this knife will cut string, slice an apple, open boxes, etc, but also boasts a larger belly which makes it convenient for skinning game and preparation of food while camping or other outdoor activities.
At 7-3/4” though, this knife is not cumbersome to carry on your belt in public settings.
(Be sure to always check local laws concerning your location and it’s specific regulations)
The production model of the Cowboy is made from 1084 high carbon steel with generally an exotic hardwood handle and brass pins with a brass lanyard tube.
This knife features a Padauk handle.
Padauk is an exotic wood that is a bright orange or almost crimson wood when freshly cut, but oxidizes to a darker, rich purple-brown over time - although it stays redder than Indian Rosewood. Slightly harder and heavier than Indian Rosewood it is a good wood in all respects - stable, and easy to work with. It often grows in small groups and is reported to be common in dense equatorial rain forests.
