Description: Mastersmith Rick Dunkerley is best known for his detailed folders that have been part of defining the Montana Boys' knives. As the owner of Mineral Creek Outfitters, however, Rick sees the need for precision hunting knives that are the pinnacle of a use knife and so each year he makes a small number of hunting knives.
52100 carbon steel (also used by such makers as Mastersmith Ed Fowler) is the blade steel that is held by many bladesmiths to be the best edge holding steel available. A differential heat treat adds to the strength of this blade. The blade has been distal tapered for perfect balance and the spine has been rounded for a perfect feel. As you would expect, the fit and finish is spectacular.
