TVJ Wanderer is a longer version of the TVJ Camper is an all-around knife that can be used for most tasks, and it’s the perfect knife for the Bushcrafter or hunter that prefer a larger knife. The extra length makes it great for butchering game and light wood processing for kindling and feather sticks. Like all TVJ knives it comes in several different variants including the choice between high-carbon, Stainless or Damascus steel. And, its offcourse a knife, built to last!
The knife based on the scandinavian traditions of knifemaking. It has a scandi grind, and a very “soft” handle that can be used for hours without hotspots. Use a leather strap or leather boot to hone it and keep it sharp, and use a drop of oil on the blade and handle to keep it from drying out/rust. Thomas likes the wooden wanderes alot due to the feel and look of wood.
