Description: This knife was hand forged by Bill from 1 1/2 inch 52100 carbon steel round stock using a carefully regulated forged so precise temperatures would be achieved during the forging process. It was then triple hardened and triple tempered using a temperature controlled oven to assure that proper temperatures were obtained and maintained throughout the entire heat treating process.
The long, blade has a thick spine, giving it the substantial heft necessary for heavy cutting tasks. It was flat ground and meticulously hand satin finished.
Damascus fittings forged by Buxton surround a beautiful handle made from Australian ringed gidgee wood. The knife is accompanied by a hand sewn leather sheath. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
