For an inspired designer, even discarded tools from the neighbor’s garage can spark a big idea. Antique hammer heads influence the handle design of the Chehalem™ everyday carry folding knife. But while the handle may be fit to become an heirloom, the blade is all business.

Eric Ochs grew up on Bald Peak, the highest point in the Chehalem Mountains. Now, from his nearby shop in Sherwood, Oregon, he has designed a knife to pay homage to his childhood home. In his younger years, he would accompany his grandfather on his hunt for antique hammers. Each had a weathered, textured look that inspired the well-loved aesthetic of the Chehalem™ handle.

The sleek clip point blade perfectly balances the antique look and is highly versatile with a deep belly and a fine point for detailed cutting. A prominent thumb hole defines the satin-brushed blade and, once open, a frame lock holds it securely in place. The Chehalem™ might be built on memories, but it’s designed for the now.

The 2-3/4" upswept clip point blade is made from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel and has a hardness of 58-60 Rc. The closed length measures 3-5/8". Weighs 3.8 oz. Made in China. Suggested Retail $44.99.
