Description: Bob Lay's designs are well thought through and show an amazing degree of craftsmanship.
Dyed and stabilized green alder nicely complements natural elk antler. Thin black fiber spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The Classic hunter combines a brass guard with an aerospace grade aluminum butt cap for a perfect balance. Brass brings out warm tones in the handle. The butt cap is completed with a lanyard.
By mirror polishing the flats of the blade and satin finishing the grinds, Bob creates a knife with grind lines that are very dramatic. The CPM154 stainless steel blade has been heat treated to Rc 58-59 for optimal edge retention and durability. This powdered metallurgical steel has a particularly small grain structure, making it take an extremely keen edge and hold it! The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge. A small ricasso makes re-sharpening a breeze.
Accompanied by a hand stitched leather sheath, cordura storage pouch, and certificate from the maker.
