Description: Audra Draper was the first woman to attain the ABS Mastersmith ranking back in 2000. Many of her techniques were acquired through studying with Mastwersmith Ed Fowler and often her pieces reflect his style with her own innovations and talents incorporated into each piece. This t Damascus Hunter is a perfect example of her aesthetic. This knife was kept in a private collection since it was made. It is in brand new condition and by all appearances, Audra could have made it yesterday!
The 4 inch drop point blade is Audra's own damascus, forged from 1084 and 15n20 carbon steels to ensure excellent edge holding and chip resistance. The bold pattern is extremely engaging. A differential heat treatment separates the ultra-hard cutting edge from a soft and supportive spine. The spine and ricasso are nicely rounded for comfort when choking up onto the blade. Audra's maker mark is on the left side of the blade. The ricasso is elegantly carved.
The sculpted handle is rosewood. The polished stainless steel guard creates perfect balance in hand. The contoured handle provides a slip resistant, comfortable grip.
To keep the knife close at hand, a hand stitched pouch style leather custom sheath is included.
Excellent work throughout!
