Description: Canadian knifemaker Alain Desaulniers' work is meticulously performed. The influence of Loveless, Steve Johnson and John Young is clearly visible in his exceptional work.
The stainless steel, clip point blade was hollow ground to accentuate the dramatic grind lines. The guard is formed from 416 stainless steel and nicely offsets natural sheep horn scales. Large stainless rivets and a lanyard hole complete the handle. The full tang construction assures a durable construction. A distal taper to both blade and tang results in perfect balance. Red fiber spacers assist the sheep horn to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The handle has been nicely contoured for a very comfortable, secure grip. Sheep horn is unique in that it gets 'grippy' when wet and so is a perfect choice for a handle on an outdoor knife. Exceptional work throughout!
