Description: Randy's fascination with knives began as a young man, when he made his first knife in a high school "metal" class. Since then, knifemaking has become a family project for him. Each of his four sons have taken their turn helping in the shop, while his wife, Sonja, makes the sheaths for the knives. This Ironwood Hunter is an excellent example of Randy's exceptional work.
The clip point blade is hand ground, polished CPM-154 stainless steel. 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. A deep hollow grind creates a high-performance cutting edge. The spine is fileworked by hand. Randy's touchmark is on the left side of the blade.
The stacked handle features a central section of jet black African blackwood. Stacked spacers of Arizona desert ironwood, Sonoran Sunset TruStone, and stainless steel surround the African blackwood. Red fiber liners set between each section will help the natural materials adjust to humidity and temperature changes. A polished stainless steel front and rear bolster finishes the handle.
To keep the knife close at hand, a tooled pouch style leather sheath by Sonja Lee is included.
Excellent work throughout!
