I know that you’re wondering how in the world a knife can be sustainable, but there is a company that has come up with a knife that is 97% wood. Pretty rare, but the German company, Lignum, has developed a high alloyed carbon steel blade, with wood that is oil and wax treated, containing high levels of anti-bacterial tannins. This means that the knife is essentially self-cleaning and only needs to be washed with warm water, according to the manufacturers.
“With the same energy, you need for one steel chef knife, we can create 32 //SKIDs … Furthermore, we are planting trees for our knives and even use the off cut for packaging and holding systems,” say Lignum.
The knife comes in four different woods, with three steel options, and when handled with care, not being put into a dishwasher, it is pretty durable. Well, that was just to stimulate your mind. We are now going to look at hunting knives, trying to figure out which ones are the best.

ESEE Junglas – Pronounced “Hoonglas” Named After the Colombian Jungla Special Operations Forces. Designed for Latin American jungle and counter-narcotics operations. The knives are made from high carbon 1095 steel. And while 1095 is a top choice for professional cutlery designed for hard use, it will rust and stain if not properly cared for, especially on the cutting edge and around the laser engraving. It is the user’s responsibility to keep the blades properly lubricated and cleaned. We suggest using a dry film rust inhibitor such as TUF-GLIDE or TUF-CLOTH.
