This custom hunting knife is made by me, Mark Buzzell (MAB), right here in Maine. This great looking custom knife is 8-1/4 inches overall with a 4″ inch blabe with a 3-3/4″ inch cutting edge by 3/16 inch thick and 7/8″ inch wide, The damascus used is a 200 plus twist pattern damascus steel. The Knife blade is marked with my MAB logo as the maker of this fine custom knife. This knife was made from a bar stock Damascus billet.  The knife billets are shaped, ground, polished, oil quenced hardened and tempered to rockwell 57 to 58, then acid etched to help bring out the damascus pattern, Then gun blued and given one final polish. The handle on this one is made from Exhibition grade stabilized African olive burl wood with African blackwood spacers,  The knife will come alive outside in the sun… The knife guard, spacers, and pommel were made from solid brass bar and sheet stock and shaped to the handle by hand.  I also had filed the top of the blade with my new “Triple wave” pattern. All done by hand with a chain saw file and a small triangle file.  I do not use a dremel tool like some knife builders, and then call it file work.  So you can see I put a lot of time into this custom knife just in the file work along with the fit and finish on this one to make it a very collectable piece, or a good working knife. Your custom knife will come with the custom brown leather belt sheath made by Carl Thomas.  Your custom knife will also come with a black zip up knife case for storing your custom knife when it’s not in use.  All my custom knives come with a hand signed COA and dvd telling more about the custom knife, when it was made, time spent, and so on.  This one of a kind should last a good many lifetimes and would make a great gift for the custom knife collector that thought they had everything. $6.00 shipping by priority mail with delivery conformation and insurance.
