    Handforged and Handcrafted! 

    Hiking and hunting seasons are fast approaching, this knife will be there to handle all the tasks at hand. The blade is hand forged from 80CRV2 steel, with a 6" 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 and placed an unsharpened swedge, 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 dyed and stabilized spalted maple scales, mosaic pin and nickel silver hardware.

    6" cutting edge, with an overall length of 11-1/2"

    This knife comes with a matching custom handcrafted sheath, made from Wickett and Craig vegetable tanned leather that has been lined with a cream colored chromium free pig-skin.  This sheath was stitched using the Norvegese/Saddle stitch technique with Colonial Tan and Bordeaux Cherry Ritza Tiger thread, then topped with Montana Pitch Blend to offer nourishment along with water and stain resistance to your sheath.
