Wild Mushroom Foraging Knives By Oaks Bottom Forge

Words by Rolan Gregg

Still in need of a holiday gift that encapsulates everything you love about the PNW, craftsmanship, and straight-up style?  Call off the search.  Wild Mushroom Foraging Knives By Oaks Bottom Forge are available at Boys Fort in downtown Portland and they will be a showstopper in any gift swapping you’ll be doing this season.  Jake France from Boys Fort gave me the lowdown on this highly crafted set.  These mushroom knives are hand forged in the Sellwood neighborhood of SE Portland by Oaks Bottom Forge.  The handles are made from local woods and the over-the-shoulder sheath is sold separately.  These handmade foraging knives also come with a certificate of authenticity from Oak Bottom Forge.  And why not pair these wild mushrooms knives with the handsome antler mushroom brushes shown below, also by the artisans over at Oak Bottom Forge.  To snap up a pair, make a trip to Boys Fort | 902 SW Morrison Street 97205, Portland, Oregon 97205.
