Description: Canadian knifemaker Alain Desaulniers's pieces are flawlessly executed. The influence of Bob Loveless, Steve Johnson and John Young is clearly visible in his exceptional work.
The ATS-34 stainless steel, drop point blade was hollow ground and finished with a mirror polish to accentuate the dramatic grind lines. The guard is formed from mirror polished stainless steel and nicely offsets the snakewood scales. Full tang construction assures a durability. A distal taper to both blade and tang results in perfect balance. Red fiber spacers assist the snakewood to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The handle has been well contoured for a comfortable, secure grip. Large stainless rivets and a lanyard hole complete the handle. Exceptional work throughout!
