Description: This custom belt knife was made by Gabriel Mabry (Doberman Forge) of Albemarle, North Carolina. Gabriel has a wide variety of skills from his background as a USMC marine, professional chef, restaurant owner, and certifed welder. He uses these skills to make knives that will serve their owners for a lifetime just like his loyal family pet that his forge is named after! Gabriel also became a Forged in Fire champion in the September 15, 2017 episode of the acclaimed TV series!
This high performance hunter's utility is a knife Gabriel called the Beagle V1. It is an extremely comfortable and useful belt knife for outdoor use.
The blade is made from 80CrV2 carbon steel with an antique finish. 80CrV2 combines excellent wear resistance with extreme chip resistance. Because this knife is made from carbon steel, it needs to be oiled and dried before being put away. We recommend using camellia oil to oil the blade, tang, and natural wood scales. The top edge stops just short of being fully sharpened and could be easily sharpened if desired. The blade is very thin and would work great as a bird and trout or a general purpose belt knife.
The handle is formed from tigerwood (Astronium spp.) set on a full tang for strength and durability. The domed scales are nicely contoured to provide a comfortable grip. The deep finger groove prevents the hand from slipping over the blade when choking up for detailed tasks.
To keep the knife close at hand, a black leather sheath made by Gabe is included.
Nice work throughout!
