Description: This is an exceptional hunting knife from Journeyman Smith Chuck Richards.
The blade was hand forged to shape from his own 350 layer Damascus. The linear pattern is one that he calls a Horizontal Twist. The pattern combines very tight, high layer count sections, alternated with bolder areas for a captivating appearance.
The guard is formed from monel, a nickel/copper alloy, surrounding copper spacers. A jet black African Blackwood spacer adds contrast. The elk antler handle is completed by a monel pommel.
The knife is accompanied by a pouch style leather sheath by Treestump Leather. Excellent fit and finish throughout!
