Description: Canadian knifemaker Alain Desaulniers' work is meticulously performed. The influence of Loveless, Steve Johnson and John Young is clearly visible in his exceptional knives. The Stiffhorn was a hallmark of Loveless' knives. Bob Loveless originally designed the Stiffhorn in 1967 as a 'non-folding folder'. It is a timeless utility style that is extremely comfortable to use.
Desaulnier's Stiffhorn with Jigged Bone is very true to Bob's original design. The stainless steel blade was hollow ground to accentuate the dramatic grind lines. The blade is 3-1/8 inches of nimble capability, for opening boxes or letters, cutting twine or slicing apples. The guard is formed from 416 stainless steel and nicely offsets amber jigged bone of the scales. Stainless rivets and a lanyard hole complete the handle, with the full tang ensuring a durable construction. A distal taper to both blade and tang results in perfect balance. Red fiber spacers assist the jigged bone to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The handle is contoured for a very comfortable, secure grip.
Exceptional work throughout. This knife will feel equally comfortable being used or as a prized knife in a collection.
