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 I have experience an enormous interest in this fixed blade concept and have since developed ideas for various limited runs like this batch of handles in brass
This limited run of 12 pieces is the first I am offering the ASTRA handle in brass. The handle pattern on these 12 is called "ARA" and is made from 5mm/ . 200" brass that has been patinated for a nice glow.
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.
The handle has weight reducing, grip enhancing milled slots. The blade attaches via two 6/40 titanium screws.
