Tiktaalik Field Knife Set – Kickstarter Campaign
All overlanders have their own way of doing things. From vehicle choice to camp chairs, through to stove fuel type and sleeping arrangements. Everyone does things differently, yet nobody can deny that a well thought out, well made product, tailored to the outdoor community deserves recognition.
Tiktaalik’s Carl Jonsson, an overlanding industrial designer has been refining this Field Knife Set for sometime.
“Many of us who love to cook outside, and refuse to compromise on quality, make a habit of bringing our knives from home simply because there aren’t any high quality, camping specific alternatives. With the Field Knife Set my intention is to create a new, hybrid product category designed specifically around outdoor cooking and adventure travel, but yet is equally appropriate for every day use at home. It’s camping gear that you can use 365 days a year.”
This is a compact set of professional quality cooking knives that are optimized specifically for travel; more lightweight, more compact and easier to clean.
The Field Knife Set consists of a 3.5” pairing knife, a 6” serrated knife, and a 6” Chef’s knife made from Sandvik 12C27 Swedish Stainless Steel. Sandvik is a Swedish steel manufacturer founded in 1862 who has been perfecting this specific steel, originally intended for surgical blades, for over 45 years.
Each knife is optimized for outdoor cooking and travel but unlike most other camping knives on the market, they are of such high quality they can also be used all day, every day. The set will come in a compact aluminum case for compact storage and travel use.
