This custom bird trout style hunting knife is made by me, Mark Buzzell (MAB), right here in Maine. This great looking custom knife is 6-1/2 inches overall with a 3-1/2 inch blade with a 3-1/4″ inch cutting edge by just over 1/8 inch thick and 7/8″ inch wide, The damascus used is a 200 plus fold random wave pattern damascus steel. The Knife blade is marked with my MAB logo as the maker of this fine custom knife. This custom knife was made from a bar stock damascus billet.  The knife billets are shaped, ground, polished, oil quenced hardened and tempered to rockwell 58, Then acid etched to help bring out the damascus pattern, Then gun blued and given one final polish. The handle on this one are made from stabilized Mammoth Bark ivory from with African black wood for liners, The mammoth ivory is from the permafrost area in siberia Russia and will date from 15,000 to 25,000 years old, Mammoth ivory makes for a great look and feel on a custom knife handle. I used two custom pins in the handles for a little extra look. The knife will come alive outside in the sun… The knife guard and spacers were made from solid brass bar and sheet stock and shaped to the handle by hand. I also hand filed the top of the blade with my “Sharp S” 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 collectable piece, or a good working knife. Your knife will come with the custom leather belt sheath made by Carl Thomas of Mississippi.  Your custom 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 and 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 life times and would make a great gift for the knife collector to admire or for the outdoorsman to use in the field and show off to thier friends.$6.00 shipping by priority mail with delivery conformation and insurance.
