Description: This Drop Point Hunter was made by Mastersmith Andrew Meers. Andrew's work continues to be some of the most inspiring knives that I ever encounter.
The blade was hand forged to shape, combining 1084 and 15N20 carbon steels into a bold, dramatic ladder pattern damascus. The swedge is brought shy of fully sharpened. The cuting edge is razor sharp. ong raised clip is fully sharpened. This blade is perfectly balanced. It begs to be brought out on a hunting trip, yet this drop point hunter will likely be the highlight of a private collection.
The handle is formed from premium stag. It has a perfect natural texture for a comfortable, secure grip. Both the guard and pommel are made from mild steel. It has been meticulously textured and patinaed. Plum blossom inlays are formed from fine silver and 24k gold. A habaki (blade collar) is formed from fine silver, drawing influence from the world of Japanese swords. The inlays were meticulously hand engraved with hammer and chisel after being inlaid for lifelike realism.
This knife is accompanied by a custom alligaor leather sheath.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
