Description: Steve Johnson has been making knives since 1966, and has worked with the likes of Bob Loveless, Rod Chappel, and Buster Warenski. He continues to make knives intended for use that feature well-defined grind lines, precise fit, and highly polished blades.
This custom piece is a very rare, unique pattern. The hollow ground blade is a shape SR describes as "a European French Knife-style blade. It was made from CPM154-CM, a crucible steel known for its edge retention as well as its superior rust resistance.
Bolsters formed from T-416 stainless steel and have been brought to a mirror polish. Steve used mammoth ivory bark for the handle material. The knife has a very comfortable feel in the hand. An absolutely classy, understated little fixed blade sure to be the highlight of a collection. As usual with Mr. Johnson's knives, fit and finish are beyond compare.
