Loewen Pocket Knife 1047
Hand made in Solingen, Germany by C. Lutters, the Loewen brand 1047 pocket knife has a 7.5 cm, flat grind, spear point blade. Available with carbon steel or stainless blade the pocket knife has steel handle liners with polished Bubinga wood handle scales.
Carbon steel is preferrable in pocket knives for long lasting edge holding properties. To preserve a shiny finish on the blade, carbon steel pocket knives need to be cleaned and oiled after use to prevent corrosion. If not cleaned, the knife will gradually develop a grey / black patina over time. Light surface corrosion can be removed with fine emery cloth or sandpaper.
