Description: This Persian Skinner is the work of the late Dr. Harold Brown of Florida. Born in 1927, Brown served in the U.S. Navy before attending college where he would eventually receive his doctorate degree. He worked as a career psychologist and chaplan for the Florida Department of Corrections. In his spare time his passion was fishing, hunting, and making knives for those he knew. Unfortunately he passed away on July 8th, 2017. This knife was kept in a private collection since it was made back in 1990. The knife is in near mint condition with a few small scuffs on the blade.
The stainless steel blade is mirror polished. While the steel is unknown, it was most likely 440C stainless steel. The blade is hollow ground and razor sharp. A large choil provides exceptional control for detail-oriented tasks.
This knife is unique in that the hand engraving done by Tom Leschorn on the bolsters skillfully continues through the spacers and wood handle. The deep relief engraving and carving is very intricate and provides a lot of tactile grip.
The warm toned cocobolo handle is sculpted to lock your hand into a comfortable grip. The bottom of the handle is signed "Carved TW Leschorn 05/90". Red, white, and blue fiber spacers separate the handle from the guard. The stainless steel guard is deeply engraved by Leschorn and is gold plated to nicely complement the warm toned wood handle.
Nice work throughout!
