Woodcraft Knife – The Revelator

This knife is the ultimate wood crafting knife or the one “go to” knife to carry outdoors or simply in the woods!

This beautiful yet useful creation was a custom design from a customer and now dear friend – Terry Taylor from Virginia, who is an avid outdoorsman (a real mans man) who had the perfect knife in mind and just needed someone to bring it to life.

What came from several design changes and great discussions the Revelator was created! (The most perfect name for this knife came from the fact that both Terry and I had “Revelations” about ourselves and more importantly our great Creator later in life. It was no chance or coincidence that we came together on this amazing project and are now good friends and brothers in Christ!

This knife has all the right curves in just the right places. Imagine squeezing a wad of soft clay around your knife as a handle and this is exactly how amazing this feels in the hand. The blade is big and heavy (but perfectly balanced and ergonomically perfect making it truly an extension of your arm and not just a knife that fits in your hand). The choil and forward-ness of this knife make it perfect for all wood chores as well as a great defense knife (see all the pictures). Click Here To See the Whole Story Behind the Revelator

    This is a beautiful, handcrafted knife. The hammer marks in the blade and the wonderfully crafted handle are like none other. It fits very well in the hand and looks great. I would highly recommend.

    IHK Woodcraft Knife – The Revelator
    I have purchased 6 knives from Indy Hammered Knives (it’s a start) and I have been blown away by the quality of work and craftsmanship that has gone into each one of them. The standard of excellence has set the bar very high for other custom knife makers to achieve! The Revelator is a workhorse of a knife that is extremely durable, and functional, while being well balanced and very comfortable in the hand. It holds a sharp edge while maintaining its beauty as well.

    Awesome One-of-a-Kind!
    I just purchased my first knife from Indy Hammered Knives with a California Buckeye/Lava Resin handle and custom blade. The workmanship is exquisite and the finished product is beautiful and bold. It feels great in the hand, has a solid heft and meaty blade diameter, and wonderful lines. I couldn’t be happier–and I will definitely be looking to do more business in the future!

    I love it!
    My 2nd purchase. The larger handle is easier on my arthritis. Everyone one that have seen it says ‘it’s the nicest blade I’ve seen’. I’ll continue to shop here. 🙂

    I truly love these knives. The quail it you of workmanship is superb and the price is very reasonable. Some of the finer examples of hand forged knives. I love ready James’s story and love doing business with a fellow brother in Christ.

    The Revelator
    Beautiful knife and well made. I would have liked to see the blade sharper but will sharpen it myself. The knife is nice enough that I will purchase more from IHK

    The revelator knife by James Wahl
    Five stars and more. This knife was made for my husband for Christmas. He is quite a knife collector. He couldn’t wait to open the package. We both think it is beautiful, and so well hand forged and hand crafted. Please tell James we are so pleased and thank you so much for his artistry and care in making this knife. Sue Ortiz

    Absolutely Perfect
    I bought the revelator with a birdseye maple handle. This knife is absolutely stunning. Beautifully hand crafted and polished with the highest quality of materials and craftsmanship. I am so happy with this knife. It is razor sharp and fits perfectly in my hand. Worth every penny!

    Christmas Gift – The Revelator – An awesome gift!
    My family gave me a gift certificate towards an IHK knife. Looking over the options on the website, I was drawn to “The Revelator”. I appreciate the back-story of it’s creation and naming. I just received the knife, and wow! It is a beautiful handmade creation. It fits my hand like a glove, and the hammered blade is exquisite craftsmanship. I admit it is my first handmade, custom, heavy duty fixed blade knife, so I don’t have anything to personally compare it to, but I wholeheartedly recommend it and IHK as a quality product and company.

  14. Shane S.

    As you know I’ve accumulated most of your work over the years and this by far is the best blade I have received. Great work and thank you!!

    I have wanted a IHK for a long time and finally got one. The Revalator was very intriguing because it is a very unique shape. I hoped I would get get before I went backpacking but was off a couple days. In December I’ll submit another review after using it. Upon looks, feel in your hand and fit/finish…I’ll quote my son when I let him hold it, “Wow!” I have well over 50 knives, he’s never said that! I to say, wow!!!
