Description: This exceptional Fighter was hand built by California knifemaker Pedro Gonzalez. Born and raised in Southern California, Pedro is the youngest of 7 children. He grew up working with his father, who taught him everything he knows in terms of mechanics and fabrication. That passion of building and crafting things with his hands led him to knifemaking. In August of 2018, Pedro came across of video of someone making a 2x72 knife grinder and though, "I can build one of those." Everything snowballed and soon he was building his own knives. Gonzales is a one-man show from start to finish. Every aspect of the knives and sheaths is done by him, He is a stickler on aesthetics, fit and finish, as well as functionality. His knives are a work of art -- eye catching, elegant, but purposefully built for a specific task.
The blade is Mountain Mai forged in the USA by 50.50 Forge. Mountain Mai is their signature take on a go mai (5 layer) pattern. The 80CrV2 carbon steel core is surrounded with 15N20 and a final layer of 80CrV2. It is coffee etched for a high contrast blade.
Contoured stabilized redwood burl handle scales are set on the full tang for strength and durability. The scales are set with stainless pins and a lined lanyard hole. Black G10 liners add a nice contrast.
This knife is accompanied by a custom hand stitched leather sheath along with a storage box and Septem Knives stickers. The sheath features an elegant ostrich shin leather inlay.
Both the knife and sheath are exceptionally well done, showing both a tremendous sense of design and skill in the workshop.
