Description: Coming back from the Blade show with mastersmith test knives is one of my great highlights of the year. In 2003, nine new mastersmiths joined the ranks. Five knives were made by each applicant that are the height of their work. These knives were judged by ABS Mastersmiths on fit and finish, as well as general artistry. The standards are exacting. This utility was one of the five knives that Heather selected as the best of her work for judging by the masters. Kevin and Heather Harvey became the first husband and wife team of ABS Mastersmiths.
As you would expect, the fit and finish are exceptional. The recurve blade has a rounded spine and distal taper. The tiger maple handle has a strong waving grain structure.
Accompanied by certificate from the maker.
