Description: Getting to meet with Journeyman Smith Stuart Smith is a real highlight of my trips to South Africa. Smith began making knives in 2000 after he took a class with Mastersmith Kevin Harvey. Stuart was immediately hooked and quit his job working as a salesman by 2004. Only a few years after that, in 2009, Stuart began teaching classes of his own. Among his many students is Neels van den Berg. Stuart has been very active over the years in the Southern African Bladesmiths Association (SABA) and the Knifemakers Guild of Southern Africa (KGSA). Stuart became an ABS journeyman smith in June of 2019.
Stuart hand forged this clip point bowie blade from 52100 carbon steel. It features a differential heat treatment, ensuring a keen, long lasting edge and supportive spine.
The stag handle is surrounded by antiqued bronze fittings. The natural stag handle provides a sure, comfortable grip, even when your hands become wet.
A tooled brown leather custom sheath is included to protect the knife during transportation.
Excellent work throughout
