WHEN CHECKING OUT, PLEASE LEAVE PREFERRED SCREW COLOR AT THE SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS (SATIN,AMBER or BLUE screws)
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 with handles in Zirconium
This limited run of 12 pieces is the first I am offering the ASTRA with handles in other materials than titanium. The handle pattern on these 12 is called "ARA" and is made from 5mm/ . 200" zirconium that has been heat colored jet black. The surface of the handle has my signature scratch pattern on the front and back.
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.
In the batch I am offering the following options:
You can choose between satin, amber or blue titanium screws
Each ASTRA is priced at $375 and comes with a kydex sheath.
The handle has weight reducing, grip enhancing milled slots. The blade attaches via two 6/40 titanium screws.
I am taking preorders for your choice of blade shape and screw color. The orders will be made and shipped out within 4-6 weeks.
Please note that if you order other items together with the ASI they will ship together when the knife is finished.
