RoseCraft Blades recently teased a suite of six new traditional knives they’ll be releasing soon, but the company is also preparing a keychain modern slippie called the Awanata. Slated for an iminent release, the Awanata shows that RoseCraft’s interest in blade shapes continues outside of the traditional stuff.
RoseCraft is a pretty new company, founded in 2022 by some knife world veterans, including Savannah “Swaggs” Swaggerty and Andy Armstrong. They came out swinging with a 12 product lineup containing modern and traditional knives in a bevy of unusual blade shapes. The Awanata will not be the first, second, or even third wharncliffe in the RoseCraft world, but it will be the smallest, measuring 2 inches even in length.
I’m back. The final “New for 2023” piece I wrote for the April issue (press day today), was Maryville, Tennessee’s own Rosecraft Knives. Nothing fancy here, just a fun and practical little keychain knife.
