Frontier Knives

 Welcome to the page dedicated to one of the most versatile models at Lucas Forge! Meet the Frontier model!

The “Frontiers” are all designed for their everyday size and their usefulness in a variety of different tasks. The “Large Frontier” and the “Small Frontier” were the first in the lineup, followed by four other designs. The designs are similar, but if you’re looking for the perfect knife you may just find it here.

The Large Frontier

Large Frontier Knife, Survival Knife, Custom Hunting Knife

This design features an incredibly useful size of about 7 1/4 – 7 1/2 inches overall that allows it to be comfortably carried every day. Opening packages, slicing vegetables for soup in camp, meat processing: these are only some of its areas of helpfulness.

Made of O-1 tool steel for rugged reliability. Comes with its own standard (vertical) leather sheath that is made right in the shop! A horizontal sheath version is available upon order, also. This model is available in many different natural and synthetic handle materials. Below are some of the options available; for more, visit the Custom Options page!

The Kephart is an historical design, so it’s exciting to offer a version of it in true Frontier style! Made using O-1 tool steel, this model is about 7 1/2 inches overall – a perfect size for carrying into the field. It comes with a handcrafted leather sheath, too!
