Description: This upswept hunter is an exceptional daily carry knife. It is built for hard use and is sure to become a favorite. This knife is named for the black shouldered kite. This bird is called blouvalk in Afrikaans. The blade was inspired by its majestic wing shape.
Award winning South African knifemaker Deon Nel is considered among the best Loveless style knifemakers anywhere. His understanding of the Loveless designs and sense of balance is particularly good. Here, he has put his skills to creating a hard use, daily carry fixed blade and the results are exceptional.
Both the blade and full tang are distal tapered for a perfect balance. The Bohler N690 stainless steel blade was meticulously hollow ground and mirror polished. The blade is razor sharp. N690 ensures a keen, long lasting edge with good resistance to chipping. It is a great choice for high performance use knives.
Green cavas Micarta scales are set on the distal tapered full tang for strength and durability. Red vulcanized fiber spacers add a nice contrast. The handle is perfectly contoured for a secure, comfortable grip that you won't want to put down. The handle is completed with a brass lined lanyard hole. The brass guard meets perfectly to the Micarta handle scales.
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched cowhide sheath.
Exceptional work throughout.
