There is a certain stigma that comes with a fella that has a sheath and knife strapped to his belt, and there is a certain nod to those who carry the Forge and Foundry Walnut Patch Knife.

And the blade is met by a black walnut handle is finished with white inlay and brass loveless bolts. The Walnut Patch Knife might appear to be a little much for urban life, but let’s face it, there are no rules these days.

And while March and spring are knocking on the door, it’s important to keep the Huckberry Beanie within an arm’s reach.

Simultaneously, the color equalizer tint allows for maximum clarity, and the central vent enables heat to escape before ever fogging up your view.
