Description: Texas knifemaker Carl Colson's work is meticulously performed. The influence of Loveless, Steve Johnson and John Young is clearly visible in his exceptional knives. This drop point bird knife is a timeless utility style that is extremely comfortable to use.
The stainless steel blade was hollow ground to accentuate the dramatic grind lines. By using PM steel, Colson ensures particularly good edge holding. The blade is 3.6 inches of nimble capability -- whether used out in the field, around the camp, or at home, this knife will have tremendous utility.
The guard is formed from 416 stainless steel. It is hand engraved in floral scroll. A distal tapered tang ensures perfect balance. Red fiber spacers assist the whitelip mother of pearl to adjust to temperature and humidity changes.
Exceptional work throughout. This knife will feel equally comfortable being used or as a prized knife in a collection.
