Description: Journeyman Smith Scott Gallagher makes an exceptional knife. I was very excited when Mastersmith Bill Burke introduced me to Scott at the 2019 Blade Show in Atlanta. Gallagher's attention to detail is immediately visible in his exquisite knives.
The blade was hand forged from W2 carbon steel. A differential heat treatment combines superior strength with a keen, long lasting edge. The elegant differential heat treatment line is visible as it travels across the blade. The spine, guard, and ricasso feature a forge finish.
Presentation grade Arizona desert ironwood (Olneya tesota) is contoured for a secure, comfortable grip. The red toned wood has an elegant, swirling figure. Thin spacers at the front of the handle combine titanium and carbon fiber.
This hunter will be kept close at hand using the hand stitched leather sheath.
Exceptional work throughout!
