Description: Bozeman bladesmith Maverik Murdock is clearly an up-and-coming maker to watch. This young bladesmith's attention to detail and devotion to the craft is clearly evident in this exceptional hunting knife. Murdock's knives are inspired by faith and family. His maker's mark shows his initials surrounding a stylized person in prayer. He also marks his knives with three dots, representing father, son, and holy ghost.
Maverik began by forging the blade to shape. The CruForgeV carbon steel will have an exceptional, long lasting edge. A hand rubbed finish lends and heirloom quality to his work. The flats are forge finished, bringing in a bit of brut de forge.
The contoured handle is formed from stabilized curly mango wood. The 416 stainless steel guard is beveled on the front, making this one particularly comfortable for detail work.
The knife is accompanied by a hand tooled, hand stitched leather sheath, also made by Maverik.
