Description: Aaron Wilburn became a journeyman smith in June of 2009 and a master smith in 2013. He creates serious knives for some of the most avid collectors in the industry and makes fantastic slipjoints that have excellent action and superb fit and finish.
The blade is hand ground from Wilburn's own damascus, combining 1084 and 15N20 carbon steels for excellent edge holding. Many thermal cycles and normalizing steps ensure consistent grain structure and exceptional durability. A cryogenic treatment between tempers further enhances the edge holding ability. The blade can be easily opened using the nail nick on the left side of the blade. A hollow grind provides an easy to maintain edge. The blade has excellent action with a firm half-stop.
Carbon fiber handle scales are set on 416 stainless steel liners. Fluted bolsters are integral to the liners and are fit perfectly to the handle scales. A damascus backspacer keeps the knife rigid.
Excellent work throughout!
