Description: Bob Lay's designs are well thought through and show an amazing degree of craftsmanship. Vibrant tones of olive, forest and kelly green from dyed, stabilized box elder burl are highlighted by the dramatic grain on the sheep horn spacer. The convoluted burl on this Classic Hunter provides a stunning backdrop for the color. Thin black fiber spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The stainless steel guard and butt cap create a perfect balance in the hand. By mirror polishing the flats of the blade and satin finishing the grinds, Bob creates a knife with grind lines that are very dramatic. The blade has been heat treated to Rc 58.5 for optimal edge retention. Accompanied by certificate from the maker.
