Description: Doug Noren was welcomed as Mastersmith in 2004. His work is exceptional, drawing heavily on the work of the late William Scagel. More so than nearly any other maker, William Scagel's knives have captured the imagination of American knife collectors, with the unique shape and appearance.
This hunter is very true to Scagel's design -- from the carbon steel upswept blade to the stacked leather spacers. The blade is hand forged 1084 carbon steel. An appleseed grind ensures a keen, long lasting edge while a differential heat treatment ensures a hard, keen edge and a softer, supportive spine.
Doug chose to follow the color themes used by Scagel, combining leather washers with steel, Micarta, and fiber spacers. The resulting handle is both dramatic and extremely comfortable. The front of the bronze guard is beveled and fits perfectly to the hand forged carbon steel blade.
The knife is accompanied by a hand tooled leather custom sheath.
The fit and finish throughout is exceptional.
