Description: This large hunter/skinner by Raymond Richard has an ageless sense of grace that is rarely found in other makers' knives. The blade was forged to shape a carbon steel leaf spring. A differential heat treatment assures that the spine is soft and resilient, whereas the edge is hard and will maintain a keen edge.
The wrought iron for the fittings is forged from an 1800s era anchor chain. Stellar sea cow rib bone forms the handle -- resulting in a very secure hand hold. Bone from the stellar sea cow, which became extinct in 1768, has a beautiful texture similar to oosic. The butt is finished off with a wrought iron cap and loop.
Excellent fit and finish throughout.
