Originally an outfitter for the Klondike Gold Rush back in the late 1800s, Filson has been making heritage outdoor and everyday carry gear for longer than the industries existed — at least as we know them today. Yet they keep managing to produce brilliant heritage-level offerings to this day. Their latest release is a trio of beautiful USA-made knives alongside a gorgeous roll in which to store them.
All three of the knives are made from start to finish in Alabama and they consist of the Skinner Fixed-Blade, Mesquite Lockback Knife, and Mesquite Professional Lockback Knife. All three are built with corrosion-resistant 440M steel blades, whereas the fixed blade has a linen micarta handle and comes with a leather sheath. By contrast, the folders boast mesquite wood and steel handles with sturdy lockback mechanisms for security in use. Finally, the Ranchlands Knife Roll is made in Colorado out of vegetable-tanned leather and boasts brass hardware with six slots for your blades. The new collection ranges in price from $85 for the Mesquite Lockback Knife up to $200 for the roll.
