All of the PB&J knives share some common attributes, particularly when it comes to materials. The blades are made from old saw mill blades which are L6 tool steel. L6 has high nickel content and is known for its impact resistance. It’s a good choice for a hard use blade. It may not be a trendy boutique super steel but it’s one of the steels that helped build America in those old mill blades and I love the idea of giving it a second life in working knife. Handles are Micarta in green, brown or black with brass pins and a brass lined lanyard hole. The combination of tough tool steel and practically indestructible Micarta makes for a tool designed for hard use. And that’s a lot of the point with the PB&J knives. They’re users, pure and simple. There’s a certain beauty in their simple, clean lines but they are first and foremost made to be used.
