A friend and student of S. R. (Steve) Johnson and John Young. You may not know that Steve Johnson was a young man in Gil Hibben’s Scout troop when he made his first knife. Years later, young Mitch was in Steve Johnson’s Scout troop when he recreated history and made his first knife. Mitch has dedicated himself to creating impeccable knives just like his mentor and his friend.
Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Dealer for Mitch Jenkins
Here is a Special knife Mitch designed and built that can be easily carried and used for any Small Woods, Field or Stream chores.
The handle scales are beautiful Aged Amber Sambar Stag which have wonderful depth of color and are perfectly matched. They provide a full grip and the shape of the handle is very comfortable.
The blade is a full 1/8″ Thick with a Full Height Hollow Grind and an impeccable Mirror polish, it also has a gently Tapered Tang with full Red Fiber Liners. The Soldering of the Tang (which many Makers do not attempt) is so well done that it appears to be one piece of steel.
Mitch also makes his own Hand Stitched heavy leather sheaths.
Great work by this rising star.
Previously owned but never used, carried or sharpened.
