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, 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 in Gil Hibben’s Scout troop when he made his first knife. Years later, 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.
This is a Harvey Draper style upswept skinner called the Cougar with some incredible aged Amber Sambar Stag handles. This beautiful knife is amazing in detail and a joy to hold.
It has a beautiful Mirror polished blade, Tapered Tang, Red Fiber Liners, Lined Thong hole and 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 an excellent, heavy Hand Stitched leather sheath also by the Maker.
