Description: I was excited when Mastersmith David Lisch introduced me to Mike Clark Jr back in 2018. Since then, his work has continued to show his tremendous attention to detail. Given the level of work, it is no surprise that Mike easily passed his JS Test at the 2019 Blade Show in Atlanta, GA.
The hand forged blade features a classic clip point. High performing W2 carbon steel ensures a keen, long lasting edge. It features a hand rubbed satin finish in the grinds and a contrasting forge finish on the flats. A differential heat treatment ensures a keen, long lasting edge with a softer, supportive spine.
The handle is camphor burl, secured to the tang using two pins. The distal tapered full tang is forge finished on the sides for a pleasing effect. The contoured handle provides a comfortable grip.
This knife is accompanied by a custom hand stitched leather sheath.
Exceptional work throughout!
