Description: 2011 marks the 35th anniversary of Bob's knifemaking. Throughout the year, he marked his 35 favorite knives of the year with the "Lay 35" mark to celebrate the anniversary. This is one such knife.
The stainless steel guard and butt cap create a perfect balance in the hand while buffalo horn forms a great grip. Jet black buffalo horn is nicely offset by the blonde sheep horn spacer.
By mirror polishing the flats of the blade and satin finishing the grinds, Bob created a knife with grind lines that are very dramatic. Bob recently upgraded his steel of choice to 19C27. The steel, which is in the same family as 12C27, is tremendously wear-resistant and takes on an incredibly keen, long lasting edge. It was originally developed for cutting cardboard in industrial settings. It is one of those rare steels that has exceptional edge holding and can be easily stropped from sort-of dull to scary sharp. The blade has been tempered to 58.5Rc for optimal edge retention. Accompanied by certificate from the maker, leather sheath, and a cordura storage pouch.
