This is another custom MAB Bird Trout hunting knife made from a carbon tool steel billet, (Old Nicholson File) by me Mark Buzzell (MAB) right here in Carmel Maine. This Bird Trout knife is 5-1/2″ inches overall with a 2-1/2″ inch tool steel blade 1/8″ inch thick 3/4″ inch wide with a rockwell hardness of 58. The handle is made from some great looking stabilized Lions Blood Amboyna burl wood with some stabilized Giraffe bone. The brass spacers with the custom pins finish off this great little hunter. The handle on this one fits just great in your hand for a snug grip. Knife is a full tang construction so it will hold up if you decide to give it some use in the field. The knife has also been hand sanded from 220 grit to 2,000 grit for a mirror finish on the blade and a glass look on the handle. I also hand filed the top of the handle in my “Thorn” pattern. All my file work is done by hand with a round file and a half round file, Not with a dremel like some knife builders do and call file worked. so as you can see I put a lot of time into every one of my Custom knives from fit and finish, To the file work, So each custom knife can be used in the field or saved as a collectors piece for years to come. Your knife’s custom sheath was made by Carl Thomas of mississippi. Your custom knife will ship in a zip up knife case and come with a coa and a dvd telling more about the knife, Time spent when it was made and so on. This one of a kind custom knife should last a good many life times. Shipping is $6.00 for priority mail with signature conformation and insurance. SORRY NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
