    This is a one of a kind set!

    This knife will make quick work of all the tasks around the hunting camp and in the backwoods. The blade is hand forged from 80CRV2 steel, with a 5" cutting edge. The cutting edge is convex and will require minimal effort to maintain the edge while out in the field. I left the forge marks on the flats, then finished off the blade with a hand rubbed satin finish. The tang has been tapered to reduce weight and improve ergonomics of the handle. Completing the package are a gorgeous set of red dyed stabilized boxelder scales and nickel silver hardware.

    5" cutting edge, with an overall length of 9-1/4"

    This knife comes with a matching custom handcrafted sheath, made from Wickett and Craig vegetable tanned leather with a shark skin inlay. The border has been dyed Timber Brown and tooled in house, finally the interior of the sheath is lined with a black chromium free pig-skin.  Saddle stitched using black Ritza Tiger thread-waxed which is a braided-poly, then topped with Montana Pitch Blend to offer nourishment along with water and stain resistance to your sheath.
