Mike needs no introduction as anyone who knows Quality Hunting knives or Scagel inspired Forged cutlery is well aware of his work.
Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Direct Dealer for Mike Malosh
Direct from the Maker from the Blade Show 2012
For those that want a traditional Hand Forged Hunting knife here is a gorgeous example of Mike’s work ready to go on your belt.
Beautiful, aged Single Piece Sambar Stag handle with dark gnarly character all the way around. A simplistic Vintage Scagle style look.
Mike worked with the natural shape of the Large Sambar Stag Antler, the Taper is toward the front and the handle flares toward the Butt creating a comfortable hand filling grip.
Perfectly ground, Full Height Convex blade must be used to appreciate how well it cuts. The blade is silver Soldered at the Tang and is Hair shaving sharp. The Brass Guard is comfortably contoured and flanked with Brass and Micarta Spacers.
Comes complete with a thick Right hand Jack Mosher Tooled Leather belt sheath, Brass Rivets (to match the knife) and Stitched.
Here is what Mike says about his knives: “All my knives are hand forged from O-1 tool steel from a single material source. This insures I always get the most consistent steel possible. O-1 is an old steel, but in researching and talking to the guys that have been forging for a long time, you would have to dig pretty deep to find a better knife steel. It will hold an edge, cut forever and never let you down. It is carbon steel so it will rust, but with a little care, it will last you a lifetime.
All my handle materials are hand cut and assembled with function and flow in mind. When the handles are completed they seem to melt into your hand like they belong there, the way a knife handle should”.
Mike sells out at every show and his back log continues to grow.
