Description: This Nordic styled hunter is a knife you can use all day long, yet it would feel at home in any collection. Jeff Driscoll has brought his full skills to creating this masterpiece.
The blade was ground from pool and eye pattern damasteel. The stainless damascus has a deep etch that is immediately captivating. A Scandi-grind assures a keen, high performing edge.
The handle and matching sheath combine sunken oak with buffalo horn and reindeer antler. In the cold waters of the Great Lakes, huge logs were stuck in the mud, suspended underwater or resting on the bottom. These logs were lost between the mid-1800s and the early 1900s while the wood was en route to lumber mills. It turns out, the quality of this waterlogged wood was actually enhanced during its long stay underwater because much of the resin had leached out. The combination of sunken oak with black buffalo horn and white reindeer antler creates an elegant contrast. The right side of the reindeer antler spacer is inlaid with fine silver. The end of the handle is inlaid with basketweave pattern damacus.
The matching sunken oak sheath features a buffalo horn medalian that is inlaid with fine silver knotwork. When the blade is inserted into the sheath, the damascus is revealed behind carved window frames. The knife is held securely in place with rare earth magnets inlaid into the sheath. A braided leather lanyard is completed with a reindeer antler crosscut and fine silver twisted finials.
Tremendous work throughout!
