Description: Journeyman Smith Jim Arbuckle resides in Yorktown, VA. He started making knives in 1979 and has been forging knives since 1996. Growing up in Washington State, he spent most weekends hunting and fishing and has a great understanding of what features make a knife perform. This handmade camp knife really shows off Jim's experience as a knifemaker and knife user.
If you enjoy getting off the beaten path and want a knife that is as tough as the country you are passing through, you'll find a use for this knife by Jouneyman Smith Jim Arbuckle. It is a perfect companion: big enough to set up camp, sharp enough to shave with, light enough to carry comfortably, and mean enough to discourage any critter wandering into camp.
The knife features a hand forged 5160 carbon steel blade which has been hardened and double tempered to HRC 58-59. To improve toughness, Jim torch annealed the spin. The blade has a nice distal taper, ensuring a perfect balance. A hand rubbed stain finish adds refinement. The edges of the spine are meticulously rounded for a comfortable grip.
The grips are contoured from natural canvas Micarta to fit the hand and all edges have been rounded to ensure they don't bite. The ergonomics of the knife really locks your hand in. This is a knife you won't want to put down! A tactical butt tab extends past the handle allowing paracord to be added for a secure grip when chopping.
The knife is accompanied by a hand tooled leather sheath.
