Description: Bob's hunting knives are well known precision tools. He began by forging his own Damascus from L6 and 1084 carbon steels. The bold random pattern was forged to shape and follows the edge of the upswept blade. The pattern nicely reflects the turbulent grain structure of the stabilized and dyed maple handle. The dye, which has a natural tone, brings out dramatic lights and darks in the maple. The guard is polished 416 stainless steel with red spacers, allowing the knife to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. Excellent work throughout.
