CULTRO = The Knife

We make our Cultro’s with choosing either a lightweight Ayous or Limba body, combining it with stiff quarter-sawn hard maple neck, with a Preciosa fingerboard with blind fretslots.

The Cultro is equipped with Bare Knuckle pickups, like all Lignators, and these knives need some Brute Force. Some Cultros are clad in a cloak of veneer designed by architect Kengo Kuma from Japan.

About Knives

One of the basic tools you need when going into the woods is a knife, an effective and straight to-the-point tool.

The knife often gets big jobs done without a hassle. That’s the role our Cultro fills in in the Lignator line-up: a no-nonsense tool that will cut right through the mix.
