Description: Mastersmith Jay Hendrickson's knives have always inspired me. There is a gentlemanly elegance to his work that matches his personality. Regrettably, we see less of his knives these days. This knife was in a private collection since it was made in 1998. It has been meticulously cared for and is in new condition. By all appearances, Jay could have made it yesterday.
The elegant handle combines India stag with curly maple. Silver vines and textured leaves are inlaid into the presentation grade wood. The antiqued wood gives an heirloom quality to this exceptional Jay Hendrickson High Clip Point Hunter. It is an incredible knife to use out in the field, though this knife will also feel at home in any collection.
Jay began by forging the 52100 carbon steel blade to shape. The appleseed grind is a hallmark of Jay's hand forged knives. A differential heat treatment ensures a keen, hard edge supported by the softer spine. Jay believes strongly in the hand forging process and it clearly shows in his work. By forging the blade to shape, Jay ensures optimal edge retention.
This knife is accompanied by a custom hand tooled leather sheath.
Excellent work throughout!
