Description: Bob Lay's designs are well thought through and show an amazing degree of craftsmanship. This Bob Lay is very rare in that it combines aluminum and brass fittings.
Sheep horn nicely complements natural stag. Thin black fiber spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The brass guard and aerospace grade aluminum butt cap create a perfect balance in the hand. The butt cap is completed with a lanyard.
By mirror polishing the flats of the blade and satin finishing the grinds, Bob creates a knife with grind lines that are very dramatic. The blade has been heat treated to Rc 58 - 59 for optimal edge retention. Accompanied by a hand stitched leather sheath, cordura storage pouch, and certificate from the maker.
