Custom D2 Steel Giraffe Bone Handle Bird Trout Knife file worked

This custom bird trout knife is made by me, Mark Buzzell (MAB), right here in Maine. This great looking knife is 7-3/8 inches overall with a 3-1/4 inch by just over 1/8 inch thick by 7/8 inch wide, Billet used was a D2 steel. The knife blade is marked with my MAB logo as the maker of this fine knife. This knife was made from a bar stock D2 billet. The knife billets are shaped, ground, polished, oil quenched hardened and tempered to rockwell 58 to 59, blade is hand sanded to 2000 grit and given one final high polish to bring out the mirror shine. The handle on this one is made from real stabilized dyed giraffe bone with some great orange brown colors. The knife comes alive outside in the sun with a 3d look into the bone and colors. The knife bolsters and spacers were made from solid brass bar stock and shaped to the handle, I also used two custom copper pins in the handle to add to the bone color, and two custom pins in the brass guards. I then hand filed the top of the blade with my “Barb wire “pattern and the top of the handle in my “Double Wave” pattern. All done by hand with a chain saw file and a small triangle file. I do not use a dremil tool like some knife builders, and then call it file work,, so you can see I put a lot of time just in the file work along with the fit and finish on this one to make it a very collectible piece, or a good working knife. Your knife will come with the custom brown leather belt sheath made by Carl Thomas, your 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 telling more about the knife, when it’s 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 knife collector that thought they had everything.
