9 in stock
The Bishop is one of the larger knives we produce, straying from our traditional reverse grip flavour and adding an option for those who prefer a more traditional approach to fighters.
The Bishop is influenced by Persian style blades, with a very subtle upswept point. The blade is made from thick stock 80Crv2, which is ground to a fine zero convex edge, making it very sharp. While the Persian influence can be felt in the robust point. The blade is available in a variety of configurations ensuring some fine tuning for personal preference.
The handle offers a comfortable grip, especially for those with larger hands, without snag points or hot-spots. Importantly, it is comfortable to use in forward, reverse, and while not completely ideal, Pikal grip is also usable if pushed.
The 2023 Custom Bishop comes with an array of options allowing you to fine-tune your knife with some precision. The range of choices are largely aesthetic, but some like the Blade Configuration can tweak performance in one direction, and also allows for legal considerations in your jurisdiction, if you need it to be Single Edge, for example. There are a staggering number of possible configurations at your disposal allowing you to define whether your Custom Bishop is a simple, functional tool, or a functional yet finely finished heirloom quality piece that can be handed down to future generations.
For 2023 we have made provision to produce a very limited number of only 10 Bishops. We are a small custom shop with limitations of how many knives we can produce per year. We have put our focus on producing high quality individually tailored defensive knives and as such this means we can only make a limited number each year. The average Build Time for our knives is 4-8 weeks, depending on the configuration, but this does NOT include waiting time in the queue, or shipping transit time at completion. Before starting on this journey we encourage you to familiarise yourself with our Tier 2 Custom Build process, so that you are aware of everything that goes into making your Divine Companion
NOTE: This knife is open for early pre-release order. Meaning your order will only be started in January 2023.
