Description: John Davis is a custom knifemaker from Freetown, Indiana. John has been enamored by knives since he was a child. As soon as he heard the American Blade Society had a school to teach bladesmithing he had to go. It was there he studied under ABS Mastersmiths Jim Crowell and Bruce Fuller. Fellow bladesmith Herb Derr is also a huge influence to John. John's designs are well thought out and his fit and finish is excellent.
The 5 inch blade is forged from John's own twist pattern damascus, combining 1095 and 15n20 carbon steels to ensure excellent edge holding. A clear differential heat treatment line separates the ultra-hard cutting edge from the soft and supportive spine. The spine is nicely fileworked in a vine pattern, providing a comfortable thumb or index finger purchase. John's mark is on the left side of the blade.
The handle combines a central column of sambar stag with a large mammoth molar spacer. The downturned stag is very comfortable and the natural texture provides plenty of grip. Alternating nickel silver and red fiber spacers will help the natural materials adjust to humidity and temperature changes. The handle is finished with a nickel silver guard and end cap. The end cap is nicely carved to match the natural texture of the stag.
To keep the knife close at hand, a tooled pouch style leather custom sheath is included.
Excellent work throughout!
