I am proud to announce that Fort Henry Custom Knives is now a Dealer for Mitch Jenkins custom knives.
I attended a Knife Show recently and though there were many makers present I can tell you the highlight of the show for me was meeting a humble gentleman from Manti, (pronounced MAN -TIE), Utah named Mitch Jenkins. As I spoke with him and viewed his knives I new immediately knew that this was a Maker destined for greatness. As if to prove my thoughts Mitch won the Rising Star award for Best New Maker at that Show.
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.
Nope, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. This full size Hunter definately has a curved spine. When considered, it is easy to see that the increased angle would also increase the cutting power and thus reduce fatigue during use. But of course let’s not forget the Amazing Sambar Stag handle scales which have wonderful depth of color and are very well matched.
The beautifully Mirror polished blade is 3/16" thick, it has a fully Tapered Tang with Red Fiber Liners and a Lined Thong hole. The Soldering of the Tang (which many Makers do not attempt) is so well done that it appears to be one piece of steel.
Provided with a Hand Stitched heavy leather sheath.
Great work by this rising star.
