Description: Scott Gallagher makes an exceptional knife. I was very excited when Mastersmith Bill Burke introduced me to Scott at the 2019 Blade Show in Atlanta. Gallagher's attention to detail is immediately visible in his exquisite knives. Over the years, his work has continued to develop. Scott achieved the coveted Master Smith title with the American Blade Society in 2021.
The blade was forged to shape from 80CrV2 carbon steel. 80CrV2 carbon steel is tough, chip resistant, and has excellent wear resistance, making it perfect for hard use knives. A hand rubbed satin finish adds an heirloom quality to the blade. Scott's touchmark and M.S. mark are on the left side of the blade.
The handle is a downturned section of amber Sambar stag. The natural texturing of the antler provides exceptional grip. The polished 416 stainless steel end cap is nicely matched to the texture of the stag. The stag is heirloom fit to the satin finished 416 stainless steel guard. By using an heirloom fit, Scott ensures there will be no sharp corners even if the natural horn were to shrink over time.
To keep the knife close at hand, a pouch style leather custom sheath is included.
Excellent work throughout!
