Description: I was tremendously pleased to meet bladesmith Dave Skinner at the 2019 Guild Show of Southern Africa. Dave brings a refined eye and tremendous skill at the forge to his knives. Over the last few years, his work has continued to develop a level of refinement that is found in very few knifemakers.
This small utility/hunter is a tremendous example of his work. The blade is hand ground N690 stainless steel. N690 ensures a keen, long lasting edge with good resistance to chipping. It is a great choice for high performance use knives. The blade features a hand rubbed satin finish.
The contoured handle is green thorn wood. Green thorn is a large tree that grows in South Africa. A distal tapered blade and tang ensures perfect balance. Handle scales meet nicely with satin finished 303 stainless steel bolsters.
This utility knife is accompanied by a custom wet formed cowhide sheath.
Exquisite work throughout!
