A simple elegant 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. It has been file worked all around. The 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 koa handle exhibits darker tones, producing some nice patterns in the wood. It has been fastened with hidden pins, as well has a mother of pearl pin overlay. A stainless steel thong liner tube lets you add cording of your choice. Comes with a lined molded cowhide sheath that has a slight texture.
