Description: Bob Lay's designs are well thought through and show an amazing degree of craftsmanship. This Bob Lay Canadian Hunter is the perfect size for using out in the field.
The blade is made from CPM154 stainless steel that has been heat treated to Rc 58 - 59 for optimal edge retention and durability. This powdered metallurgical steel has a particularly small grain structure, making it take an extremely keen edge and hold it! By mirror polishing the flats of the blade and satin finishing the grinds, Bob shows off clean grind lines that are very dramatic. Jimping along the spine offers a secure thumb purchase. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge. A small ricasso makes re-sharpening a breeze.
The handle is made from a nice section of cocobolo (Dalbergia retusa). The warm brown toned wood is nicely complemented by a blond sheep horn spacer. The handle is completed with a brass butt cap and spacer giving it perfect balance in hand.
This knife is accompanied by a hand tooled leather sheath and a Cordura storage pouch. This Canadian Hunter from Bob Lay will be a perfect companion for any adventure!
