Description: Bob Loveless developed the Combat Fighter as a very versatile custom hand made knife. This Deon Nel Combat Fighter shows 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.
The Bohler N690 stainless steel was meticulously hollow ground and mirror polished. The clip and edge are razor sharp. A boot grind lightens overall weight and ensures a detail-oriented tip. N690 ensures a keen long lasting edge with good resistance to chipping. It is a great choice for high performance use knives.
Arizona desert ironwood 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. The handle is completed with two Corby bolts and a steel lined lanyard hole. The 303 stainless steel cross guard helps your hand not slip forward onto the blade.
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched leather custom sheath.
Exceptional work throughout.
