Description: Handmade by Jim Arbuckle, this knife is an exception camp knife. The blade was forged to shape from 5160 carbon steel. It is hardened and double tempered to Rc 58 for excellent edge retention. A hand rubbed satin finish lends elegance. The blade has a deep belly and slight recurve, with the weight brought out toward the tip. Bocote scales sit on the thick full tang. The scales are nicely sculpted for a secure, comfortable handle. The sheath is particularly well done and has been coated with a wax/oil finish. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
