Description: This is a great hunter. Bill forged the blade from virgin 1 1/2 52100 round stock using a carefully regulated forge, so precise temperatures would be achieved during the forging process. It was then triple quenched and triple tempered using a temperature controlled oven to assure that proper temperatures were obtained and maintained throughout the entire heat treating process. All of this results in exceptional performance and edge holding.
The blade was hand rubbed to a 600 grit satin finish. A nickel silver guard meets perfectly to the thuya burl handle. The handle is very comfortable and provides a secure grip. The pouch style sheath is hand sewn from quality 8-9 oz. leather to assure years of service.
