Description: Mastersmith Jay Hendrickson's knives have always inspired me. There is a gentlemanly elegance to his work that matches his personality. This Southwest Clip Point Hunter features presentation grade curly maple surrounded by cocobolo. Fine silver and turquoise inlays provide a great accent. Handle scales are set in place with hand domes nickel silver pins. The contoured handle feels great -- This is a knife you'll have a hard time putting down. This hunter has been in a private collection since it was made by Mastersmith Hendrickson in 1995. It has been meticulously cared for and is in new condition.
Jay began by forging the 5160 carbon steel blade to shape. The appleseed grind is a hallmark of Jay's hand forged knives. It provides a high performing, long lasting edge with plenty of strength behind it. A clear differential heat treatment line travels along the blade, showing the transition between soft, supportive spine and the keen, long lasting edge. Jay Hendrickson believes strongly in the hand forging process and it clearly shows in his work. By forging the blade to shape, Jay ensures optimal edge retention.
This knife is accompanied by a pouch style leather sheath with a basswood liner.
This is a tremendous knife -- perfect for serious use or presentation.
