Description: The Loveless style Drop Point Hunter is perhaps the quintessential hunting knife throughout the world. Loveless developed a hunting knife shape that just works exceptionally well. This Deon Nel S-Bolster Drop Point Hunter is no different. It shows off Nel's work at its best.
Award winning South African knifemaker Deon Nel is considered among the best Loveless style knifemakers anywhere. His understanding of the Loveless designs and sense of balance is particularly good.
Both the blade and full tang are distal tapered for a perfect balance. The Bohler N690 stainless steel is meticulously hollow ground and mirror polished. The blade is razor sharp. N690 ensures a keen, long lasting edge with good resistance to chipping. It is a great choice for high performance use knives.
African blackwood handle scales are set on the distal tapered full tang for strength and durability. The handle is perfectly contoured for a secure, comfortable grip that you won't want to put down. It is completed with two hidden bolt rivets and a steel lined lanyard hole. The 304 stainless steel guard meets with the handle scales in an elegant, perfectly performed S-curve.
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched cowhide custom sheath.
Exceptional work throughout.
