Knives Illustrated - - Gear Up -

KI: Andy Roy, with over 90 mod­els in your lineup, what makes the Bush Her­mit stand out?

AR: I think the Bush Her­mit stands out be­cause the curves on the bot­tom of the han­dle ac­com­mo­date large hands very well. This open-han­dle de­sign on the un­der­side can ac­cept more fin­gers when you’re grip­ping on it. It won’t spin in your hand.

KI: What at­tributes make your blades suit­able for the hunter?

AR: I think the con­vex grind ex­cels at hunt­ing and game prep tasks. In ad­di­tion to this, my knives fea­ture er­gonomic han­dles. This means a hunter can in­dex the knife in hand and al­ways know the lo­ca­tion of the edge.

KI: Hunt­ing can be hard on a blade, what should the user avoid do­ing with your knives that isn’t nor­mal “wear and tear”?

AR: A knife is not a pry bar, and my knives are not throw­ing tools. While I don’t con­sider ba­ton­ing abuse, it can eas­ily break a blade when done in­cor­rectly.

KI: Pick two other blades to com­ple­ment the Bush Her­mit, GO!

AR: I sell a lot of larger and smaller knives to com­ple­ment the Bush Her­mit. To make a Ness­muk trio from Fiddleback, try us­ing our 12-inch ma­chete (best ma­chetes in the world) and a Handyman. With those three knives, there is lit­tle a smart woods­man couldn’t ac­com­plish.
