Description: Bob Beaty specializes in hunting knives. By using a cryogenic heat treatment, Bob is able to ensure exceptional edge holding. The blade has been hand fileworked and has a thumb ramp for a sure thumb purchase. A distal tapered blade and tang result in a perfect balance.
The California buckeye burl handle has been stabilized so as to hold up well to the strenuous demands of outdoor use. The dramatic, swirling grain structure is complemented by a sheep horn spacer. Alternating nickel silver and red fiber spacers bring out the natural warm tones of the wood and assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The guard, which is stippled on the sides, reveals the natural damascus pattern at the front.
This knife fits very well in the hand and is accompanied by a pouch style leather sheath. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
