Description: Don is a maker that is a force to be reckoned with. Having started making knives under the watchful eye of Mastersmith Rick Dunkerley, he learned quickly what to look for. This sole authorship knife has a excellent fit and finish, with a distal taper to the blade that creates a balance that feels great in the hand.
The blade is a perfect shape for a hunter/utility and is forged from a pattern that Don calls "River". This modified ladder pattern is captivating both up close and upon closer examination. Stag scales are dovetailed to damascus bolsters for a perfect fit. Fiber spacers between the full tang and scales assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. Excellent work throughout.
