Description: When I recently visited Mastersmiths Kevin and Heather Harvey at their home in Belfast, South Africa, I was very pleased to see that had some of their knives available. Kevin and Heather teach bladesmithing courses, with students travelling from all over the world to learn their techniques. When I visited, they were teaching a six person, two week introduction to bladesmithing course -- with students coming from as far away as the Middle East. Kevin uses the Heavin Forge mark on his knives when he creates a knife while demonstrating for his classes. This is one such knife.
The 5 inch drop point blade was forged to shape from 5160 carbon steel. It was forged closely to shape, ensuring a keen, long lasting edge. A differential heat treatment creates a knife with a strong edge, supported by the resilience of a softer spine.
The handle is contoured from sandpaper bush burl wood (Ehretia amoena). Sandpaper Bush, or in Afrikaans skurweblaarbos (rough or coarse leaved bush), grows in the far northeastern parts of South Africa, typically near rivers or in bushveld. The twisted wood has a similar tone and figure to wild olive. The light toned wood has a nice mix of light and mid toned figure. The handle is nicely rounded for a secure, comfortable grip.
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched, embossed cowhide sheath.
