Description: This Drop Point Hunter is an exceptional daily carry knife. It is built for hard use and is sure to become a favorite. The slim handle makes the knife very easy to carry on the belt.
The drop point blade is Bohler N690 stainless steel meticulously hand hollow ground for an easy to maintain cutting edge. N690 is created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. The grinds feature a hand rubbed satin finish and the flats are mirror polished. Deon's maker mark is shown on the left side of the blade.
Handle scales are presentation grade karelian (masur) birch wood. This beautiful stabilized wood has a swirling grain structure that is pleasing to the eye. The scales are hand contoured. They are set on a full distal tapered tang using four pins. Red fiber liners will help the natural wood adjust to humidity and temperature changes while out in the field. A textured 304 stainless steel bolster finishes the handle.
To keep the knife close at hand, a hand stitched leather sheath made by Deon is included.
This is an exceptional knife that will bring you pride while out in the field and perform just as good as it looks!
Exceptional work throughout!
