In the tradition of the late Bob Loveless, Yaroslav Hrybinets makes Hand Made custom knives with beautiful upscale finishes, without the use of CNC or Computer Equipment of any kind. Each knife is hand made one at a time and all aspects of the blade are finished in his small shop in the Ukraine.

This is a Modified Utility Model and this beautiful knife is incredible in every detail and a joy to hold.
The Fit and Finish on this one is Amazing, especially for the price. The Bohler N690CO Blade was given a Professional Heat Treat and Cryogenic Quench and then Yaroslav gave the blade a Flawless Mirror Polished Finish. N690CO is a Cobalt Vanadium Steel and is similar in performance to VG-10.
It has a Steeply Tapered Tang, Thin Black 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.
The handles are Aged Linen Micarta and there are Four Small Pins in the handle.
Provided with a very well made Hand Stitched RH leather belt sheath.
A super nice piece with impeccable fit and finish.
