Description: Bob Lay's designs are well thought through and show an amazing degree of craftsmanship. Regrettably, these days, very few of his knives make it over to the US. This Classic Hunter will be an exceptional companion while out in the field, but will feel right at home in any collection.
The blade is CPM-154 stainless steel heat treated to Hrc 58 for optimal edge retention and durability. This powdered metallurgical steel has a particularly small grain structure, making it take an extremely keen edge and hold it! By mirror polishing the flats of the blade and satin finishing the grinds, Bob shows off clean grind lines that are very dramatic. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
The handle combines hand contoured zircote wood with a fusion resin spacer. The handle fills your hand and provides a comfortable grip. Alternating brass and red fiber spacers surround the spacer. The handle is finished with a polished brass guard and aircraft grade aluminum butt cap.
This knife is accompanied by a hand stitched leather sheath and a Cordura storage pouch.
Excellent work throughout!
