Lamb splitter and carcass splitter

For those who live in areas where firearms are not an option and those that are smart enough to have a back up.

Lamb splitter and carcass splitter

Post by Storm Crow » Wed Jan 30, 2019 11:38 pm

A couple of new big blades that got shipped out earlier this month. Two firsts on these: the cord-wrapped one is the heaviest I've made, and the slab handle on the lamb splitter is the longest slab I've ever made.

Both of them are forged from 80CrV2 steel with Boltaron sheaths.

The wrapped one has an 18" blade and weighs 5.14 pounds, the first of mine to weigh more than 5 pounds. The handle is 22" long, scorched hemp on top of a neoprene foundation, with West System marine epoxy.

It was a Christmas gift from a wife to her husband, and she had me laser engrave this on the blade.

The lamb splitter is an over-sized version of what is usually a large one-handed butcher knife-looking blade. The blade is 17 1/4", the handle is 17", and the weight is 4.125 pounds. It has the longest slab handle I've ever made, from tan TeroTuf with flared stainless steel tube rivets.

The customer has assured me that the lamb splitter will be used for butchering.
