Bespoke Post “Forge” Review
My husband Will has been obsessed with Damascus steel for some time now. He has always been really interested in forging, and something about this particular method really grabbed his attention. He loves reading about this history of weaponry and would someday like to dabble in knifemaking, though that is a hobby that certainly wouldn’t fit into our lifestyle right now.
Needless to say, I was really, really excited to get to select this piece from the boxes available this month.
There are very few times I can recall in our marriage when I have seen Will pick something up with such reverence. Usually, it is a baby or a puppy, or some other cute, delicate thing. This time, it was a knife.
BucknBear Mini Camper Knife – Retail Value $69.00
Even I have to admit that Damascus steel is rather interesting. This striking blade is made out of 256 layers of alternating 1095 & 15N20 steel. The folding of these over and over is what gives the blade its distinct and very beautiful layered effect. The one I selected for Will has a handsome walnut handle complete with brass pins. The blade itself is around 3.25 inches long, making it perfect for camping or just keeping close by when outside working around the garden.
I don’t know a ton about knives other than that they are supposed to cut things, and this one does that! But if you start talking about knives with Will, prepare to be talking about them for a while.
Will explained to me that many manufacturers create “fake” Damascus steel blades that are not forged correctly or that are simply decorated with a surface finish of those distinct black lines. Some are so bad that you can actually rub them off the blade with your finger! This made me nervous, as I really wanted him to be impressed with this gift. Much to my relief, he was so excited to find that this piece is genuine, and really well made to boot!
Will’s favorite new possession also came with its own high-quality leather sheath. It featured super thick leather and a belt loop.
Verdict: This Bespoke Post pretty much made Will’s dreams come true. Seriously, he is obsessed with this knife. He keeps it at his desk and every so often I will catch him pulling it out of the sheath to examine it and smile. Overall, we are looking at a total retail value of $69.00, and since I would have bought this for Will even without a subscription, I am very pleased to have spent $45 on it with my membership.
To Wrap Up:
