Description: This exceptional hunter was made by TM Dowell. It has been in a private collection and is in new/mint condition. By all appearances, it could have been made yesterday. Dowell 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. At the base, the tang spreads into a protective rear bolster. The blade features a deep hollow grind that Dowell is famous for -- this makes his knives great cutters and slicers while retaining excellent overall strength by virtue of the sturdy spine. The redwood burl handle is perfectly fit to the distal tapered tang and is secured using nickel silver rivets for durability and strength. Dowell's mark is on the left, central rivet. Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
