This is another custom MAB Scandi grind drop point hunting knife made from a carbon tool steel billet, Old file, By me Mark Buzzell (MAB) right here in Carmel Maine. This custom drop point knife is 8-1/2″ inches overall with a 4-3/8″ inch tool steel blade and just over 7/8″ inch wide and 1/8″ inch thick with a rockwell hardness of 59. The handle is made from some great looking stabilized flame red maple burl, Your handle will come alive outside in the sun with tons of colors.. The copper guard, spacers and pommel are all made from solid copper flat bar and sheet stock and shaped to the knife by hand. The copper spacers with the flame red maple give this one a great look to finish off this great custom knife. The handle fits just great in your hand for a snug grip as well. The knife is a rat tang construction with a corby nut in the end so it will hold up in the field if you decide to give it some use. Your custom knife has also been hand sanded from 220 grit to 1,200 grit for a mirror finish on the handle. I custom acid etched the blade in a flame grass pattern, I also hand filed the top of the blade in my “Flame” pattern to tie the flame and fire look all together. All my file work is done by hand with a round file and a half round file, Not with a dremel like some custom knife builders do and call it 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 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.
