Description: Gary Rodewald is an exceptional knifemaker and this is a tremendous example of his work. Though this knife will be a high performing knife, it would be equally at home in any collection. From the clean design and excellent ergonomics, to the high fit and finish, this knife is sure to be your favorite companion while out in the field.
The drop point blade is forged from Gary's own twisted W's damascus, combining 1084 and 15n20 carbon steels for excellent edge holding. The flat ground blade has excellent cutting geometry. Gary's touchmark is on the left side of the blade.
The handle is exhibition grade Hawaiian curly koa (acacia koa). This durable wood is only found on the Hawaiian islands and is one of the most desired woods used in knifemaking. The handle is sculpted to swell at the palm creating a non-slip grip. The handle is perfectly fit to a satin finished 416 stainless steel guard.
To keep the knife close at hand, a hand tooled leather sheath made by Gordon Kenley is included.
Excellent work throughout!
