Each component in The Continental Collection is built in a small batch and forged by the hands of an Army veteran. From the blade itself, formed from 1080 carbon steel tempered to 56-58 Rockwell hardness, to the Micarta handle. Each blade is also wrapped in a rich 100% leather sheath, which is custom cut and sewn.
The exact moment in time when the name for these knives was chosen occurred on a mountain in Chaffee County, CO. Standing in the tram house of the Mary Murphy Mine, it all seemed to make perfect sense. Men from a different time pursuing a dream in a new land, carving their names into a chapter of history. All of these men are now long gone, but their stories live on.
Each blade within The Continental Collection assumes the name of a man buried in a cemetery in a town connected to the Mary Murphy Mine via the Continental Divide. So, if you’re looking for a quality set of cutlery that will last a lifetime and then some; you’ve found it. Welcome to The Continental Collection.
