Durable. Rugged. Natural. Maine Made. This is the Moose Antler Watch Pocket Knife, with a Dao-style Blade.
Handmade by Phil (Uncle Lumpy), a local craftsman right here in the state of Maine. He was a full-time miner, cutter & jeweler for over 30 years and a part-time and hobbyist, woodworker, carpenter & carver for over 40 years. He continues to pursue his love of working with his hands, creating beautiful carved pieces like his one-of-a-kind antler grip knives.
“I’m just a big kid,” he says. A big kid who can hand-carve a block of bird’s-eye maple into an 18-inch-long, multi-hinged Tyrannosaurus rex, complete with teeth and super-lifelike hands. Or a majestic and lifelike moose that poops out Raisinets when you tap its tail. That moose is a hit with the kids who visit McCrillis in his toy shop at Bethel’s Philbrook Place, where he sells classic games and vintage toys alongside his wooden creations.
McCrillis’s shop is a former blacksmithery off the 1820s house in Roxbury that his family has owned for 60 years. There, in addition to his hyper-detailed toys, he carves elaborate wooden cribbage boards, flutes, and pipes, along with knife handles made from shed moose antlers.
