The Bishop is the newest design in the Ironside Edge Works stable and the first knife designed by both makers. A more conventional forward grip fighter which is as elegant as it is deadly.
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 which is supported by a swedge.
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
The Tier 2 Custom Bishop gives you the option of choosing a multitude of mostly aesthetic options to build your own, personal knife. You can make it as simple or as complex as you like! You also get to select from sheathing and mounting options to fine-tune the knife to your personal carry style. For an in-depth look at all choices available to you, head to the Tier 2 Custom Options page.
We only make provision for a limited number of Tier 2 Custom Bishop blades per month. We do this to ensure that we do not take on too many custom orders at one time, so that we can ensure the work is not only of a very high standard, but also gets completed on time. In general build time is estimated at 4-8 weeks. The range is mainly depending on the complexity – Synthetic scale handles are the simplest and quickest, while tsukamaki takes a lot longer. Likewise, materials we have offered are generally what we keep on hand and what is readily available. However occasional delays can happen – we will always keep you apprised if this is the case.
