Description: South African knifemaker Hennie du Plessis creates an exceptional knife. This hunter shows his tremendous attention to all the details. The fit and finish is impeccable, providing an excellent showcase of exotic materials.
The blade is ladder pattern damascus, forged from carbon steels, ensuring a keen, long lasting edge. A gun blacked finish provides high contrast. The damascus has a beautiful chatoyancy. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
Handle scales are Arizona desert ironwood set on a full tang for strength and durability. The gently rounded handle feels sturdy and fills your hand perfectly. A large choil will provide plenty of control for detail oriented tasks.
Deeply etched mokume gane bolsters combine brass and copper into a damascene that nicely complements the warm tones of the ironwood scales. They are dovetailed to the handle scales for a perfect fit. By using torx screws, Hennie ensures the knife can be taken apart if future repairs are ever needed.
This hunting knife is accompanied by a hand stitched leather sheath that is designed for horizontal carry.
If you are looking for a compact daily carry fixed blade that will turn heads whenever you use it, look no further! With both the knife and sheath weighing in at under 10 ounces, you'll hardly even know it's on your belt until you need to use it.
Excellent work throughout!
