Mammoth Bone Handle Tiger Twist Damascus File Worked Blade

This custom Damascus hunting knife is made by me, Mark Buzzell (MAB), right here in Maine. This great looking knife is 7-1/8 inches overall with a 3-3/8 inch by just over 1/8 inch thick and 1″ inch wide 200 plus fold tiger twist pattern Damascus steel blade. The knife blade is marked with my MAB logo as the maker of this fine knife. This knife was made from a bar stock Damascus billet. The knife billets are shaped, ground, polished, oil quenched 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 stabilized fossil mammoth bone, the bone on this one is from Siberia Russia and is found in the permafrost, the bone will date from 15,000 to 20,000 years old making a very unique handle, with some great colors. The knife bolsters are held in place with two custom brass pins, both bolsters were made from solid brass bar stock and shaped to the handle. I then hand filed the top of the blade with my “Barb Wire” 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 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. $6.00 shipping by priority mail with delivery confirmation and insurance.
