Description: This dramatic neck knife by Raymond Richard has an ageless sense of grace that is rarely found in knives. The shear steel used for the blade was recovered from a turn of the century circular lumber saw blade. This type of steel was developed to withstand the heavy stresses of lumber mills. Raymond has etched the surface, revealing the wootz-like grain structure. A differential heat treatment assures that the spine is soft and resilient, whereas the edge is hard and will maintain a keen edge.
The handle and sheath are sculpted from black cow horn and detailed in brass. Raymond has set a magnet on the right side of the wooden sheath which directs the blade perfectly into place and holds it securely for one of the most satisfying sheaths that I have encountered to date. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
