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 New York Special was a hallmark of Loveless' knives. The Loveless NY Special was based on the larger Riverside Hideout model. The comfortable handle shape is know as 'The Lamb', after its designer, Thomas Lamb. It is a timeless utility style that is extremely comfortable to use.
Desaulniers' New York Special with Amber Stag is very true to Bob's original design. The stainless steel blade features a hollow boot grind. The blade is 3.2 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 the amber stag scales. Stainless Corby 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 stag 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.
