In my house, "dull" was a four-letter word. Dad had only one rule when it came to knives: Sharp knives are safe knives. He personally made sure that every blade in our house backed him up. From the steak knives in the kitchen to the blades on our old push mower, if it was meant to cut, he kept it sharp as a razor. Any steel that lost its edge was sent to his workbench, a mysterious corner of the basement equipped with honing steel and whetstones. His personal blades always stayed the sharpest. And the Stauer Carraca Lockback Knife would have found a place of honor right in my old man's front pocket.
The Carraca's 3 ½" body is composed of sturdy pakka wood, a natural composite of layered hardwood fused with thermosetting resins that renders it impervious to moisture and weather. The drop-point blade is crafted using only the finest grade, meticulously-honed steel for a razor-sharp edge that'll last. This compact cutting tool features elegant details you'd expect to see only in much more expensive pocketknives. A stylish, scalloped design runs along the back of the blade and through the center of the handle. And each pakka wood pattern will be unique, making your Carraca Lockback Knife a one-of-a-kind work of art. Sturdy and sharp enough to impress the most demanding knife collectors. Stylish enough to make the final cut.
