How to get a Bush Monkey knife:

 

A knife designed by someone who has done a few things is fundamentally different from a knife designed by someone who has done nothing.  Some people have the capacity to appreciate that difference.

 

Bush Monkey Knives makes a few limited runs of 50 - 100 knives/year.  The model knife for each run may be a new design or one of our older designs.

 

Announcements of limited runs will be posted below, on Bush Monkey Knives Instagram and Bush Monkey Knives Facebook Group pages.  

 

I look forward to putting a knife in your hand with one exception - I don't knowingly sell knives to hippies. If you are a hippie or think you might be a hippie, please be a forthright one and take your business elsewhere.  Or, apply and graduate from our re-education camp.

DIFFERENT FOR A REASON - Compare this full aft working bevel length to any secondary beveled blade of equal length. With a small knife, 1/2” wasted on a plunge is a BIG deal - also harder to sharpen. Every element of every Bush Monkey knife has a purpose.
