Product Description for Big Wave Hunter
Maker: Jeffrey E. Driscoll (click to see more by this maker)
Jeff built this knife to resemble Jim's knives … beginning with a blade that was forged by Jim. The pool and eye damascus shows off Luman's skill at the forge. It is highly controlled with a deep, clear etch. The bold pattern immediately grabs your attention and sparked Jeff's imagination for this knife.

Description: Wave is a tribute by Jeff Driscoll to Montana knifemaker James Luman. Jim brought an amazing amount of skill to his steel and inspired many knifemakers.
The super-sharp blade moves into a brass guard that protects your fingers and provides an excellent feeling of control. It brings the balance to a perfect 50/50 balance point.
A malachite spacer with indexed fine silver and black fiber washers assists the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The stag handle has a slight downturn and is very comfortable. The left side features pin decoration combining brass, copper and stainless pins.
Driscoll completed the wave theme with a carved brass wave on the brass pommel. Waves also decorate the sewn and riveted Luman-style sheath.
