Description: Bruce Barnett is a Western Australian knifemaker living in the hills of Perth. Bruce is one of the fine Australian makers who is drawing the attention of the knifemaking world to the wealth of knifemaking talent in his country. Bruce's attention to detail and fine design aesthetic is clearly apparent in this elegant and high performing hunting knife. This high performance hunter will fit well in any collection! Bruce was honored as an ABS journeyman smith in June 2011.
This Long Hunter features a 7-1/2 inch blade hand forged from 5160 carbon steel. A differential heat treatment line is clearly evident on the blade. This shows the division between the soft, supportive spine and the ultra-hard cutting edge. The result: superior edge holding with exceptional durability.
Satin finished stainless steel fittings surround a stag handle. The pommel is carved to match the natural texture of the stag. Black fiber spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes.
Excellent work throughout.
