Description: This exceptional Damascus Hunter was forged by Shayne Carter. Shayne is a Certified Journeyman Farrier and a became an ABS Mastersmith in 2019. In 1984, Shayne was the first American to win the World Champion Blacksmith Competition (WCBC) held in conjunction with the Calgary Stampede. Shayne is still the youngest participant to win the WCBC title at age 23. Over the years, Shayne has been very active in competitions, winning spots on the American Farriers Team in 1986,1988,1990,1993, 1997, and 1998. He travels all over the world teaching horseshoeing skills, blacksmithing, and knife and tool making. In 1998, Shayne received the Jim Linzy Outstanding Clinician Award. In 2000, Shayne was voted Farrier Industry Legend. This was awarded to the top 25 most influential contributors to the farrier industry. In 2003 Shayne was inducted into the International Horseshoeing Hall of Fame. Shayne’s knives have become well-known for their exceptional functionality and beautiful designs. He competed (twice!) in and won the popular show Forged in Fire in season three. He is an exceptional blacksmith and bladesmith.
The harpoon tip blade was forged to shape from his own damascus. By combining carbon steels, Shayne ensures a keen, long lasting edge. The damascus is tremedously complex, combining a bold explosion pattern at the center and finely detailed explosions at the cutting edge and spine.
The contoured handle is presentation grade ringed gidgee. This Australian hardwood has a particularly tight curl. It is heirloom fit to the twist pattern damascus ferrule. The stainless steel guard is polished on the sides and satin finished at the front.
This is a truly exceptional knife showing a level of skill that is rarely encountered.
