Description: Mastersmith Jay Hendrickson's knives have always inspired me. There is a gentlemanly elegance to his work that matches his personality. Fine silver scrolls are inlaid into presentation grade the curly maple wood handle. The wood gives an heirloom quality to this exceptional Jay Hendrickson Long Clip Point Hunter.
Jay began by forging the 9260 carbon steel blade closely to shape. 9260 is a spring steel and combines tremendous resilience with a keen, long lasting edge. Because the blade is made from carbon steel, we recommend using camellia oil to prevent rust. The appleseed grind is a hallmark of Jay's work. A differential heat treatment line travels along the blade, showing the transition between 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 formed from presentation grade curly maple. Scrolls of fine silver are meticulously inlaid into each side of the maple. These culminate in textured leaves. The handle is completed with an India stag crown. The end of the crown features a bear paw print. The contoured handle feels great in hand.
To keep the knife close at hand, Jay created a hand stitched elephant leather sheath.
Excellent work throughout!
