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 hunter features a 4 inch carbon steel blade hand forged to shape from 1084 carbon steel.
The stainless steel guard is precision fit to the blade and is followed by a copper spacer surrounded by thinner black fiber spacers. The black fiber assists the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The handle is formed from minirichie wood. This Australian hardwood is highly prized for its stability. The wood has a deep brown tone with elegant curls throughout. Excellent work!
