Description: Canadian knifemaker Alain Desaulniers's work is meticulously performed. The influence of Loveless, Steve Johnson and John Young is clearly visible in his exceptional work.
The stainless steel drop point blade is comprised of ATS-34, which offers superior rust resistance as well as edge retention. A mirror polished finish is a fine choice for this classy piece. The blade was hollow ground to accentuate the dramatic grind lines.
The guard is formed from 416 stainless steel and nicely offsets canvas Micarta scales. Large stainless rivets and a lanyard hole complete the handle. The full tang construction assures strength and durability. A distal taper to both blade and tang results in perfect balance. The handle has been nicely contoured for a very comfortable, secure grip. Exceptional work throughout.
