Description: Bob Lay creates a spectacular hunting knife. His designs are well thought through and show an amazing degree of craftsmanship. This Bob Lay Angler is the perfect size for use out in the field.
The blade is made from CPM154 stainless steel that has been heat treated to Rc 58-59 for optimal edge retention and durability. This powdered metallurgical steel has a particularly small grain structure, making it take an extremely keen edge and hold it! By mirror polishing the flats of the blade and satin finishing the grinds, Bob shows off clean grind lines that are very dramatic. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge. A small ricasso makes re-sharpening a breeze.
The handle is made from maple burl. The wood has a tremendous swirling grain structure and has been stabilized for strength, beauty and durability. A front spacer is formed from natural sheep horn. The handle is completed with a stainless steel butt cap, guard, and spacers, giving it perfect balance in hand.
This knife is accompanied by a hand stitched, tooled leather sheath and a cordura storage pouch. It will be a perfect companion for any adventure!
