Flatspot Camping Knives are made out of skateboards, by skaters, in a skateshop. Its like a pointy skate-ception of awesome.
The Flatspot Camping Knives are back! We don’t have much extra time between lurking, skating and rewatching every season of the X-Files, so it takes us a while to get these done. To ensure a long life they are sealed with food safe danish oil. Then they are waxed and buffed to finish their protective coat, which also makes them suuuuper shiny which is awesome.
All of these knives are made from the offcuts of Folk Skateboards that were produced locally here in Vancouver. When a board is pressed, its pressed out of rectangular veneers. Cutting out a board/oval from a rectangle leaves you with corner pieces, which don’t have all that much use. Thankfully Andy at Folk Skateboards wasn’t into throwing these little gems of maple out, and we got a chance to give them a new purpose.
All the Flatspot Knives are made in our basement with hand tools. No CNC’s here (but man it would be awesome to have one. . ). This means that every knife is unique, they are all slightly different widths and no two are the same layup.
They also function quite well for many different purposes. They work fantastically for making shotgun holes and they cut through some of the toughest. . timbits. Whatever, its what we had on hand, plus they are delicious. But they are indeed sharp, and come with a durable nylon sheath so you can keep them on you but not in you.
If you want one of these, you should probably move on it. We don’t make them fast, cause, you know, netflix. But hey, at least we made them at all right?
