Description: Journeyman Smith 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 hunter features a 7 inch carbon steel blade hand forged to shape from 5160 carbon steel. This resilient steel will hold an exceptional edge while having good strength for chopping. When combined with a triple temper and triple quench, the results are exceptional. A differential heat treatment line is clearly visible on the blade. This shows the division between the soft, supportive spine, and the ultra-hard edge steel. The result: superior edge holding with exceptional durability.
The handle is formed from presentation birds eye wandoo. Eucalyptus wandoo is a medium-sized tree widely distributed in southwest Western Australia. The wood of this species is extremely dense and much prized amongst woodworkers.
A 416 stainless steel guard is precision fit to the blade and is followed by copper spacers surrounded by thinner black fiber spacers. This assists the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. Accompanied by a custom pouch style leather sheath.
