Description: Mastersmith Jay Hendrickson's knives have always inspired me. There is a gentlemanly elegance to his work that matches his personality. Silver vines are inlaid into presentation grade curly maple. The antiqued wood gives an heirloom quality to this exceptional Jay Hendrickson hunter. This exceptional Hendrickson hunter has been in a private collection and has been meticulously cared for. By all appearances, Hendrickson could have made it yesterday.
Jay began by forging the 1084 carbon steel blade closely to shape. The appleseed grind is a hallmark of Jay's work. A clear differential heat treatment line travels along the blade, showing the transition between the soft, supportive spine and the keen, hard edge. Jay believes strongly in the hand forging process and it clearly shows in his work. By forging the blade to shape, Jay ensures optimal edge retention.
The handle is presentation grade curly maple. Scrolls of fine silver were meticulously inlaid into each side. The shaping of the maple feels great in hand -- this is a knife you won't want to put down! A front 'bolster' is formed from crosscut stag and adds excellent contrast. All finishing and embellishments -- of both knives and sheaths -- are completed by Jay.
This knife is accompanied by basswood lined sheath wrapped in leather and covered with diamond back rattlesnake skin. Excellent work throughout!
