Description: Jim contours his handles to fit exactly into the hand, and this sturdy hunter is no exception. The handle is comfortable in several grips so that it can be used comfortably for an extended time. Both the blade and tang are distal tapered, giving a good balance and feel. Extensive modified bamboo file-work runs from the butt to halfway down the blade, which has been hardened and double tempered to Hrc 58-59 for excellent edge holding ability and strength. Suitable for most field-work involved in hunting. This design has a point fine enough to fit into small areas and enough belly to be useful for skinning.
