Description: I was very pleased when Mastersmith Bill Burke introduced me to Bruce Barnett. For several weeks, Bill had brought up this Australian visiting knifemaker as a potential new maker for BladeGallery. When I saw Bruce's attention to detail, skill, and artistic eye, I immediately thanked Bill. It was with great pleasure that I watched Bruce complete the performance test on his way to becoming a journeyman smith.
This damascus hunter features a 6.2 inch blade formed from Devin Thomas damascus. The stainless damascus has a tight banded pattern and is immediately captivating. A distal taper to blade and tang assures excellent balance.
The handle is formed from mallee root burl wood. This Australian wood has a tremendous swirling grain pattern that is immediately captivating. The wood scales are set on a distal tapered full tang and set with nickel silver screws. The knife is accompanied by a Kydex sheath. Excellent work throughout.
