Please note this is a handle only! You can match this with a blade of your choosing, screws and a kydex sheath to create a full Astra
The Astra Standard Issue or ASI in short is the knife that fits equally well in a colonial marine´s medic bag on the USS Sulaco or on an architects desk for sharpening pencils and cutting out scale models.
Since launching the ASTRA in December 2021 I have experience an enormous interest in this fixed blade concept and have since developed ideas for making the handles in various materials and shapes.
This run of new experimental handles with the working title Astra NOVA Short is made from 5mm/ . 200" brass that has been patinated for a nice glow. These measure 2.87" in lenght as compared to 3.66" for the regular sized handle. This is for that just a little bit smaller package.
The ASTRA is a small utilitarian fixed blade built in a modular design that allows to interchanges blades and handles of your liking and need. Transports and stays safe in a small kydex sheath that allows for dropping the knife in the bottom of a jacket pocket, ride on your belt or maybe installing on the hul of your kayak. In short the perfect little blade for whatever you need it for.
