A completely new model and first cleaver released by Shed Knives, the 2023 Atlas is an ideal tool for chopping and hard use tasks. An Atlas shows you how to get somewhere, the 2023 Atlas carves the path. With a total length of 9.375 inches, this beast can withstand the hardest challenges and environments thanks to the CPM-154 steel used.
The G-10 handles can be replaced/removed with either a flat or phillips bit screwdriver. The 3 screws can be used in the Kydex sheath to connect the clip. The G-10 handle can stay firmly attached without the middle screw, if needed.
All 2023 models come with a black Kydex sheath. The Kydex sheath allows the knife to click into place and stay there without the worry your knife will cut through the sheath (which can happen with leather and Nylon) or fall out. Kydex can be easily washed with soap and water. Make sure to completely dry the inside of your knife with compressed air before putting your knife back in.
Clips, screws, and more:
The jimping on the spine of the knife is a nice addition to help the user maintain a firm grip on the knife along with better control. The sharpening choil also helps the user with sharpening as it separates the blade from the handle with a clear & defined gap and helps the user fully sharpen the blade all the way to the heel of the blade. The half inch lanyard hole can be used to attach the knife to rope, line, D-rings, gear, and more.
A little about Shed Knives, Handmade in the USA
Originally starting in 2018 as just a hobby, Shed Knives was started by 3 friends making knives on Saturday mornings. At the time, they didn't have a name, logo, or any solid designs but it was simply just for fun. The very first knife made by Shed Knives was actually not a knife, but it was "katana" or sword made from a piece of steel found in the local woods, wood from a scrap pallet as the handle scales, brass coat hanger for the pins, and a strand of leather to go over the handle.

As they started to perfect their craft, the team of friends began getting noticed by friends and family for their new passion. As time went on in 2018, the 3 friends started trading knives for bigger and better machines to build the "Shed Knives Shop." To create the knives, the friends needed a forge. The original forge was made from a a big aluminum bucket, clay from the local river, a coffee can on the inside to keep everything contained, a hair dryer, and a metal tube connecting the forge to the hair dryer. The forge was created for $4.98 with only the vent tube needing to be bought.
