Fort Heny Custom Knives is proud to be a Direct Dealer for Lon Humphrey custom knives.
Direct from the Maker at the Spirit of Steel Show 2011
Lon Humphrey is a well known Bladesmith from Ohio. At the 2011 Spirit of Steel show in Knoxville, TN Lon was awarded the "Best Overall Bowie Knife" award.
In addition to high end Forged blades Lon also offers a tough hand forged line professionally made with a historic flair. Knives like these can be used hard and will still last a lifetime.
Each knife is forged to shape of 5160 steel, leaving the spine a full 1/4" thick with the forging scale and hammer marks left on the flats for a truly rustic look. Tapered Tang to help reduce weight. Another unique feature is how Lon created the very comfortable, integral finger guard, he flared out a portion of the Tang to create it.
Expert Differential Heat Treating of the blade is evident by the faint Temper line showing along the edge.
This knife comes with a thick Hand Tooled Leather Belt sheath by Roger "Mudbone" Jones.
The shape of this particular knife harkens back to Frontier days when every man shot his dinner, rolled his own smokes and he carried only one knife to do all his cuttin.
Popular with Reenactors who requires an accurate yet usuable piece or the Hunter who wants a traditional hard use blade.
