I have been working with Bob on this original design and combined that with Bob’s style and knowledge to bring it to market as an Exclusive for Fort Henry Custom Knives
Fort Henry Custom Knives
~ Exclusive ~
This knife is one of a RARE FEW CUSTOMS to be marked with Bob’s New St Paul, AR Maker’s Mark
In Bob’s Classic line, the hidden tang is a full one-half inch wide and is completely heat-treated to gain the maximum properties that can be had from the steel. A rectangular slot is machined in the handle to perfectly fit the tang. This eliminates the need to fill up the extra space with epoxy. Then just the necessary amount of epoxy, along with a brass nut secure the handle for a lifetime of hard use.
This knife has an Ironwood Handle that is thick, yet Contoured very well to fit the palm with Thin G-10 and Brass Spacers. The Brass Guard is expertly soldered so no moisture has access to inside the handle.
The Thick, wide Skinning blade is 1 1/4″ wide
With a Sambar Stag Butt cap that has Gnarly grain and it has been comfortably sculpted to rest against the back of the palm. This handle will stand up to years of use and with proper care will last a lifetime.
This knife adds all the features of Bob’s upscale Classic line and provides a proven and unique blade shape in Bob’s legendary 3/16″ thick D2 steel.
Complete with a wet molded Right Hand Leather Belt Sheath ~ this knife fits so securely, you cannot even shake it out!
Ready for the your next trek into the Wilderness.
