Named after a mythological Hindu creature, considered the guardian of gateways and the entry’s to temples, the Makara is a lightweight utility knife that can can switch to a defensive role when needed. It also has a very personal connection to one of our Knife Makers, the Makara was designed in honour of Elijah’s grandfather.

The Makara is designed to be a simple, lightweight forward grip knife that could be used as a more utilitarian every day carry knife. The blade is just under 3″ long with a pronounced and robust point  and a swept flat-ground edge, making it adept at general utility tasks, light bush crafting, or in a pinch could be used for defensive application as well.

The handle is fairly neutral and has great ergonomics for its more utilitarian tasks. It’s also on the smaller side, making it very easy to carry.

This is a ready to purchase Tier 2 Custom Makara. The blade is ground from rare Aogami #2 steel and painstakingly hand sanded and polished to a high finish before being hot blued, a classic firearms finish which gives it a timeless quality. This is not likely a blade that will be repeated any time soon, as this steel is hard to come by. The handle scale is textured in a modified Anso pattern from stabilised Box Elder Burl on a polished brass liner with brass pins. The knife is sheathed in a fold over style Kydex sheath and supplied with a Soft Loop for OWB carry, although it could be fitted with other mounts as well.

Note: There are some slight aesthetic imperfections on the handle scales of this knife which occurred during finishing. The price is reduced for this reason.

You can additionally add a Blunt Trainer version with your order as an option for a slight discount, ensuring we can make the trainer to match the live blade as close as possible.

This is a great little knife that also happens to be very elegant and fit for a gentleman’s EDC!
