This is another custom MAB Bird trout style hunting knife made from a high carbon steel billet (old nicholson file) by me, Mark Buzzell (MAB), right here in Maine. This Bird trout knfe is 7-1/8″ inches overall with a 3-1/4 inch blade, 3″ inch cutting edge 1/8 thick, 5/8 inch wide with a 58 rockwell hardness. The blade has been hand sanded to 2000 grit and then polished to a mirror finish. The handle is made from some very nice cocobolo wood and Stabilized mammoth tooth.. The mammoth tooth used for the spacer is found in siberia russia in the permafrost and will date from 15,000 to 25,000 years old. This one has tons of burls and swirls when you have it out in the sun.. The custom knife is a rat tang construction with a corby nut in the end, so it will hold up when you're using it in the field. I also hand filed the top of the knife blade with my “Sharp Thorn” pattern. All my file work is done by hand with a chainsaw file and a small triangle file, not with a dremel like some builders call file worked, The custom knife is stamped with my MAB logo as the maker of this fine knife. The knife guard, pommel and Brass spacers are all made from flat bar and sheet stock and shaped by hand to the knife. Your custom knife will come with the custom leather sheath made by Carl Thomas of Mississippi to fit your custom knife nice and snug, and it will also ship in a zip up custom knife case for storing your custom knife when it's not in use. All my custom knives come with a hand signed COA and a dvd telling more about the 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 custom knife for the hunter that should have the very best. Shipping is $6.00 for priority mail with signature conformation and insurance. SORRY NO INTERNATIONAL SALES
