Description: George Herron, who passed away in early 2007, was a genius and a pioneer who was so generous with his hard-earned knowledge that his influence will be seen in knives for generations of knifemakers to come. He was renowned for the sturdy, yet exquisitely designed and constructed stock removal knives he made throughout his life. This knife is numbered 2543.
This excellent little Bigby semi-skinner is the sort of knife that George is best remembered for. Light and maneuverable, this knife has been in a private collection and is in immaculate condition. Though comfortable in any collection, it would certainly stand up to field use. A mirror polished blade shows off clean grind lines and matches the high luster of the handle and fittings.
Clean, flowing lines continue from the blade to the handle. Cocobolo scales are set on a full, distal tapered tang. The handle is well contoured and fits in the hand like an extension of your arm. A stainless steel guard and a graceful flare at the butt of the knife ensure your hand stays exactly where you put it. Black fiber spacers help the knife adjust to temperature and humidity changes. Quality workmanship from one of the knife world's great masters.
