Description: Since Dusty Moulton started making knives fulltime in 1991, he has received over 23 awards for best knife and has primarily centered his attention on hunters. Because this has been his primary focus, he truly excels. Mouton's work has been featured in numberous magazines as well as David Darom's The Art of Modern Custom Knifemaking: 100 Custom Knife Related Projects In the Making (page 84) and Art and Design in Modern Custom Fixed-Blade Knives (page 25). This knife has been in a private collection. It has been meticulously cared for and is in mint condition. By all appearances, Dusty could have made it yesterday.
The ATS-34 stainless steel blade was hand hollow ground and features a hand rubbed satin finish. The spine is fileworked for a secure thumb purchase when choking up on the blade for detail work.
Stabilized amboyna burl handle scales are dovetailed to 416 stainless steel bolsters for a perfect fit. The convoluted wood is particularly beautiful. The scales are set on a distal tapered tang, ensuring a perfect balance. Thin black fiber spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The bolsters are deeply engraved in a floral scroll by Ron Nott and show off tremendous skill. Inlaid 24kt gold details immeditaely grab attention.
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched pouch style leather sheath.
Excellent fit and finish throughout.
