Description: Styled after the knives of William Scagel (one of the best known makers of the early 20th century), this classic swayback hunter has everything that you would expect from ABS Mastersmith P.J. Tomes. The fit throughout is excellent, from the soldered guard to the spacers and handle material.
Mastersmith P.J. Tomes doesn't make as many knives has he used to, so I was extremely pleased when he called to let us know he had just completed some new knives that were coming our way.
Tomes forged the blade to shape from a bar of 52100 carbon steel. This steel is considered by many knifemakers and knife users to be the best steel currently used to make knives. The shape is perfect -- both as a daily user and as a skinning knife. The blade features a hand rubbed satin finish.
The stacked handle features washers made from brown leather, black fiber, and steel and is finished with stag for a sure, comfortable grip. This combination ensures you will enjoy using it for hours. You'll have a hard time putting this knife down!
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched leather sheath.
Excellent fit and finish throughout.
