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 is forged to shape from a twist damascus comprised of 1084 and 15N20 steels. The blade is flat ground and is stout at .2 inch thick. The nickel silver guard is complemented by four nickel silver pins set into each side of the handle. The handle itself is made of presentation grade stabilized curly koa wood and offers a lovely multi-grain pattern. It is polished to a luster, but the wood offers a fairly non slip feel. A swell toward the back and at the palm assists in a sure grip of this knife. This piece is accompanied by a very nice, dark brown leather sheath made from 8 ounce leather and hand-stitched and molded to shape. A knife capable of heavy duty work, but with a simple beauty and ergonomic feel.
