Custom Trail Knife ~ 08 of 10 for 2016
This is a one of Michael’s rare Fixed Blade Hunting knives. As an Artist Michael enjoys creation and experimentation, he decided to Hand Craft a few Hunters before the Show this year (each a different size and purpose) and this is one of the most Robust in that group ~ a Tough, but beautiful Trail Knife that has a gorgeous appearance but will be strong enough for any Camp or Woods Chore.
This is a Full Tang Hunter with a wonderfully comfortable Custom Contoured Handle of Stabilized Curly Maple with a Black Micarta underlayer. The Curly Maple has Gorgeous Chatoyance with Incredible Grain on both sides. This size handle will best fit a Med to Large Grip or someone wearing gloves.
The Handle Scales were cut from the same block so they match perfectly. This is some of the finest Curly Maple that I have seen in the long time!
The Blade was Hand Ground from Robust 5/32 nds ELMAX that Michael gave a Two Tone finish, the Flats have the Original Mill Scale left on them and Michael gave the Bevels a Labor Intensive Hand Rubbed Finish.
A Late Distal Taper at the tip will allow for Finer Cutting work or assistance in puncture. Michael is a perfectionist and crafted each part of this knife with care and precision.
This knife comes complete in a Custom Fitted Kydex Sheath that has a Felt Inner Lining to prevent scratching.
~ Hand Crafted with precision from the finest materials ~
Included is a FREE Bronze Bead ~ a $75 value.
