Description: Journeyman Smith Bruce Bingenheimer makes an exceptional hunting knife. This knife is designed for outdoor use but will feel at home in virtually any collection.
The blade was forged to shape from 5160 carbon steel. A differential heat treatment ensures a strong blade with a soft, supportive spine and a keen, long lasting edge. A triple quench and triple temper provides exceptional performance. The nickel silver guard is hand satin finished. The buckeye handle was stabilized so as to hold up well to the rigorous demands of outdoor use. The handle is carved for an ergonomic grip. Accompanied by a hand stitched and textured pouch style leather sheath.
Exceptional work throughout!
