Boddington Blade-Universal Utility Knife
With a blade designed by Colonel Boddington with features for both tactical and hunting applications this is a workhorse of a blade. Anza Knives are made from the finest steel files. These blades are sturdy and keep their edge for a long time. If you would like me to autograph the sheath please add your request in the “customer comments” section upon purchasing and checking out! Thanks
All Boddington Blades are made by Anza knives from high carbon file steel and will darken with age. The advantage of high carbon steel is that it holds a sharp edge very well and is easier to sharpen than comparable stainless steel blades. Drill bits are typically made from high carbon steel for this reason. All Boddington/Anza knives are heat treated to add strength for long life. Fillet knives are made from 1095 SPRING STEEL for flexibility.
ALL BODDINGTON/ANZA KNIVES are made from start to finish by hand with the use of belt sanders, grinders, and other shop tools for material preparation. It takes years of experience to master all steps involved to complete a knife start to finish with our techniques. NO TWO KNIVES ARE EXACTLY THE SAME due to this hand made process. All knives are “Full Tang”. In a full tang knife, the knife extends completely through the knife’s handle, and the edge of the tang is completely visible around the perimeter of the handle. The Tang is acid etched “ANZA USA (2 digit year) - i.e. ANZA USA 15’ BODDINGTON
