Description: Texas knifemaker Carl Colson's work is meticulously performed. The influence of Loveless, Steve Johnson and John Young is clearly visible in his exceptional knives. This clip point hunter is a model that Colson calls his Texas Hunter. It is a timeless utility style that is extremely comfortable to use.
The clip point blade is hand ground CPM-154 stainless steel with a mirror polish, hardened to 61 Hrc. 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. The grinds are hollow ground to a razor-sharp edge. A hollow grind creates effortless slicing and ensures the blade will not need to be thinned over time to stay high performance. The edges of the spine have been softened to provide a comfortable thumb purchase. Carl's touchmark is on the left side of the blade.
The handle is quilted maple, set on a distal tapered full tang. A lanyard can be added to the back of the handle for extra retention. The handle is finished with a polished stainless steel guard. Black fiber spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes.
To keep the knife close at hand, a pouch style leather custom sheath made by Carl is included.
Excellent work throughout!
