Description: This elegant 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. The BG-42 stainless steel blade and tang both have an elegant distal taper, resulting in an optimal balance. BG-42 is a powdered metallurgical (PM) steel with small crystalline structure that leads to dramatic improvements in edge retention. 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 burgundy micarta 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 escutcheon. The handle swells at the palm for a comfortable grip. Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
