Description: This custom integral hunter was made by Gabriel Mabry (Doberman Forge) of Albemarle, North Carolina. Gabriel has a wide variety of skills from his background as a USMC marine, professional chef, restaurant owner, and certifed welder. He uses these skills to make knives that will serve their owners for a lifetime just like his loyal family pet that his forge is named after! Gabriel also became a Forged in Fire champion in the September 15, 2017 episode of the acclaimed TV series!
This high performance knife is definetly a knife you will want on your belt while out in the field. The blade is forged from 1085 carbon steel and features a hand rubbed satin finish which provides an heirloom feel to the knife. The flat ground blade has a slight recurve to improve cutting ability during tasks like skinning or game processing. A swedge stops just short of fully sharpened and could be sharpend if desired.
The handle is hand contoured yellow cedar burl (Cupressus nootkatensis). The slim handle is exceptionally light, but fills out the hand nicely. The handle meets perfectly to the integral forged bolster. This technique has superior structural integrity and requires a particularly talented smith in a custom setting. The knife has exceptional balance and feels great in the hand.
To keep the knife close at hand, a tooled dark brown leather sheath is included. The sheath rides high on the belt keeping it out of the way when sitting down.
Excellent work throughout!
