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 Damasteel batch
This limited run of 2 pieces is only the second time I am offering the ASTRA with Damasteel blades. The handle pattern on these two is called "NOVA".
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:
Droppoint blade in Damasteel and handle CUPRUM anodized titanium
Sheepsfoot blade in Damasteel and handle CUPRUM anodized titanium
Each ASTRA is priced at $395 and comes with a kydex sheath.
The handle has weight reducing, grip enhancing milled slots. The blade attaches via two 6/40 titanium screws.
