A unique Stanley blade knife has been launched by a kick starter in the form of the Kraken Blade by Oceanus Brass, which is already raised over $140,000 thanks to nearly 3,000 backers still 52 days remaining on its campaign. Machined from a block of solid brass the Kraken Blade has been designed to provide a rugged multipurpose knife inspired by the famous ocean monster. The word Kraken is first found in print, tales about this creature seem to date back to Norway in the twelfth century. Such tales refer to a creature so large that it is mistaken for an island or an archipelago.
Specially priced early bird pledges are now available for the creative project from roughly $55 or £41 (depending on current exchange rates), offering a considerable discount of approximately 45% off the final retail price, while the Kickstarter crowd funding is under way. If the Kraken Blade campaign successfully raises its required pledge goal and fullfilment progresses smoothly, worldwide shipping is expected to take place sometime around March 2021.

“Designed for serious adventurers. The Oceanus Brass Kraken Blade is sharp, eye-catching, and built to last. We set out to make a timeless cutting instrument that was both rich in history and classic in design. One that you would want to own and take with you on your day’s journey, either on the open ocean or in the great outdoors. The result is a rugged and attractive knife that can be operated with either hand.”
The No. 1992 steel utility blade present in the Kraken Blade is tough and will stay sharp with daily use due to its great edge retention and corrosion-resistant material. Without worrying about getting chipped, dull bent, or broken, you can use it for camping, fishing, sailing, as a work tool, or most EDC tasks.
