William Scagel Knives Now at the KnifeCenter

William Scagel Knives Now at the KnifeCenter

William Scagel, rest his soul, can be considered the father of modern custom knifemaking as many of his designs and techniques are still copied and used to this day. Scagel’s style of using stacked leather and stag, paired with a drop point hunting blade became popular for it’s quality, elegance, and high degree of function. Scagel Knives were always 100% handmade, as William preferred it, making original Scagel models extremely hard to come by. Today, a new company has begun remaking Scagel knives to the same exacting standards in Michigan and they come in two different fixed blade models, the Bowie and the Hunter. Whether you prefer stag or leather, a maneuverable 5-3/8″ blade or a larger 8″ size for more serious tasks, there’s a Scagel configuration for you. Get one in your hand and you’ll be able to tell the absolute quality of every William Scagel knife, available at www.knifecenter.com.
