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 is CPM-154 stainless steel with a hand rubbed satin finish. This powdered metallurgical steel has a particularly small grain structure, making it take an extremely keen edge and hold it while remaining tough and chip resistant. Gene's touchmark is on the left side of the blade.
Handle scales are Tasmanian eucalyptus burl (Eucalyptus regnans). Tasmanian Eucalyptus Burl is from the diverse family of the myrtle tree that is native to Tasmania, an island south of Australia. Eucalyptus trees are among the tallest trees in the world and grow in cool, mostly mountainous areas. Scales are fit to black carbon fiber bolsters. The blade and tang are distal tapered to provide excellent balance. At just 2.4 ounces, this knife will be easy to carry daily.
A tooled pouch style leather sheath is included to keep the knife close at hand.
Nice work throughout!
