Description: Mastersmith Steve Dunn is known nearly as well as an engraver as he is a bladesmith … and that says a lot. Steve, who teaches classes in engraving at the GRS school, has taught more knifemakers the intricate skills of engraving than anyone I know.
The 52100 carbon steel blade features an heirloom quality hand rubbed satin finish. Many makers and collectors feel that 52100 is among the best steels available for knifemaking. The blade is easily opened using the thumb nick. The blade has strong action and a 1/2 stop.
Amber stag scales are set on 416 liners. A 416 stainless steel escutcheon is inlaid into the left scale. Showing his devotion to high precision workmanship and durability, Steve milled the liners for integral bolsters, rather than using separate pieces. Though this technique takes significantly more time, it results in much stronger, elegant construction. The bolsters are engraved in Western scroll style. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
