Description: Gene Martin of Williams, Oregon made his first knife back in 1990. He was immediately bit by the knifemaking bug. His mentors include some greats in the industry including Bob Engnath, Jim Ferguson, Bill Herndon, Wayne Goddard, Steve Schwarzer, and Ralph Freer. After retiring as a game warden, Gene spent 6 weeks at the ABS school in Arkansas. Wayne Goddard taught him damascus making and folder making while Bob Engnath taught him how to scrimshaw. He takes the culmination of his skills and creates American-made knives designed for use.
The blade on this knife is 154CM stainless steel with a hand rubbed satin finish. 154CM offers excellent corrosion resistance coupled with good edge holding and chip resistance. The blade combines a deep belly with a stout tip perfect for hard use tasks. Gene's touchmark is on the left side of the blade.
Handle scales combines maple burl with African blackwood. The scales are secured to the distal tapered tang using six copper pins. They are contoured to fill your hand for a comfortable grip. Satin finished stainless steel bolsters are dovetailed to the scales.
To keep the knife close at hand, a leather pouch style custom sheath made by Gene is included.
Nice work throughout!
