Description: Dana Hackney is an up and coming maker with extreme promise. His sense of design is exceptional and only matched with his level of attention to detail.
Dana began by hand forging the blade from 1084 carbon steel. The clip point design results in an extremely functional knife. Hand satin finished with an appleseed edge and distal taper. A differential heat treatment assures a keen, long lasting edge with a soft, supportive spine. The guard has been fileworked on the sides. The back is mirror polished. The front face and pommel have been textured. Fiber spacers surrounding the warthog tusk ferrule allow the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The handle is nicely rounded and fits comfortably into the hand. The stabilized English walnut wood has a nice grain pattern. Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
