Description: Jon has paired his high contrast mosaic Damascus with spalted alder for this excellent hunter. Jon's Damascus always has a clean etch and excellent clarity and control in the pattern. The butterscotch tones of the stellar sea cow bone spacer blend superbly with the tones in the spalted alder.
The blade has a strong distal taper, making an excellent feel in the hand. The slight convex grind results in a blade that will have excellent edge retention.
Jon is becoming well-known among collectors because of the high quality of his work.
