A solid Damascus hunting knife, embellished by the simple beauty of the material flow. The blade is of my own 1084 & 15N20 carbon Damascus in a random pattern. The HCK bullseye Damascus bolsters are also of my own damascus and they are dovetailed and all the joints between the handle and metals have ever so slight been rounded over. This is to prevent any possible sharp edges during movement of the wood.
As well, the Damascus bolsters are fitted with hidden pin construction, to have no visible distraction from the damascus. The stabilized spalted maple handle exhibits a nice orange brown tone with the spalting producing some nice patterns in the wood. It has been fastened hidden pins, as well has a Damascus pin overlay. A stainless steel thong liner tube lets you add cording of your choice. Comes with a lined molded and slightly textured cowhide sheath.
