Description: This exceptional hunter was made by TM Dowell in the summer of 2001. It has been meticulously cared for and is mint and perfect in every way.
Towell is one of the masters of the integral knife -- where the blade, tang and guard are all formed from one solid piece of steel. The D2 blade and tang both have an elegant distal taper, resulting in an optimal balance. The blade features a deep hollow grind that Ted is famous for -- this makes his knives great cutters and slicers while retaining excellent overall strength by virtue of the sturdy spine.
The stag handle is perfectly fit to the distal tapered tang and is secured using nickel silver rivets for durability and strength. Ted's mark is on the left side. Red fiber spacers allow the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
