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 skills and creates American-made knives designed for use.
The drop point blade is D2 semi-stainless steel with a hand rubbed satin finish. D2 is known for its ability to hold an exceptional edge while requiring just a little bit of additional care -- to prevent rusting, it is important to dry the blade after use. The spine is rounded for additional comfort. Gene's touchmark is on the left side of the blade.
Handle scales are mammoth ivory bark taken from the exterior of the tusk. The ancient ivory is well matched in cream and coffee tones with black veins moving through the ivory. The scales are secured with custom mosaic pins made by Gene's wife Sally Martin. The scales are fit to satin finished stainless steel bolsters secured with copper pins. The distal tapered tang provides excellent balance in hand.
To keep the knife close at hand, a pouch style tooled leather sheath is included.
