Description: ABS Mastersmith Audra Draper makes an impressive knife and among those, her sheep horn hunters are highly coveted. She makes very few these days. To find one forged from Damascus is nearly unheard of.
Audra apprenticed under Mastersmith Ed Fowler. This Damascus sheep horn hunter shows the strong influence of her teacher -- from the brass guard to the sheephorn handle. It is especially rare to find a sheephorn hunter from Audra where both the spacer and the handle are created from sheephorn.
The swirling Damascus patterns show tremendous control. The blade has been differentially heat treated, assuring a strong spine and exceptional edge retention. The handle is gently curved and provides a sure grip, even when wet.
