This is a custom MAB Damascus hunter made by me, Mark Buzzell (MAB), right here in Maine. This custom knife has a Spider Web damascus blade that is a 200 plus fold “Web” pattern damascus, The custom knife is 7-1/2 inches overall with a 3-5/8 inch blade, 3-3/8 inch cutting edge, 1-1/4 inch wide and just under 3/16 thick. The knife blade is marked with my MAB logo as the maker of this fine knife. This custom knife was made from a bar stock Spider Web 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. This one has a very nice contrast in the damascus making it a real eye catcher. The handle on this custom knife is made from some great looking thick stabilized mammoth ivory from, The ivory will date from 10,000 to 25,000 thousand years old and was found in the permafrost area of siberia russia, I used two custom pins in the brass guards and two more in the handle, All the brass spacers and guards are made from flat bar and sheet stock and shaped by hand to the knife. The knife was hand sanded from 220 grit to 1,200 grit making for a mirror shine on the handle and steel. This custom Knife is also a full tang construction so it will hold up in the field if you decide to give it some use. I also hand filed the top of the blade in my “Walking lizard” pattern, And the handle in my “double wave” pattern, all my file work is done by hand with a chainsaw file and a small triangle file, not with a dremel tool like some knife builders like to call extensive file work!!!! Give me a break…I put a lot of time into every one of my knives from fitting and finish to the file work, so every knife can be a collectors piece or a working knife. This one will fit great in your hand, And has some great weight to it. This is your chance to own a real quality handmade knife. I also used a piece of mammoth ivory to make a lanyard bead between the two 14kt gold beads for the final touch. The knife will ship with custom fit leather sheath made by Carl Thomas. The custom knife will also ship in a zip up knife case. All my custom made knives come with a hand signed COA and a DVD telling more about the custom knife, when it was taken off the bench, time spent building and more. USA buyers $6.00 shipping with insurance. SORRY NO INTERNATIONAL SALES
