Mosaic Damascus Whale Bone, Walrus Ivory and Fossil Coral handle File Worked Hunter

This great looking drop point hunting knife is made with a piece of Robert Calcinore mosaic Damascus composed of 1095,1080, O1, Mild steel and nickel steel, Robert makes some of the best stuff on the market and you can see why it sells out fast when you see how nice a blade this stuff makes, The billet was hand ground, polished acid etched oil quenched hardened and tempered to a Rockwell of 56 to 57 a blade with this many steels in the mix will not have a Rockwell the complete length of the cutting edge as some of the softer steels will meet at the edge causing a softer cutting edge, whats all this mean, You may have to touch up the cutting edge if your giving it some use in the field, That’s all, Back to the knife, this one is 8″ inches overall with a 3-3/4″ inch blade by 1″ inch wide and 1/8″ inch thick. The handle is made from stabilized fossil coral from the sea of Vietnam with ancient walrus ivory and ancient whale bone marrow in resin, (Top That) what a handle this one has, The knife is a rat tang construction with a Corby nut in the end, the handle also has a solid brass guard and pommel and aluminum spacers all made from flat bar and sheet stock and shaped by hand to the knife, I also hand filed the top of the blade in my “Triple Threat” pattern for the extra look, and the handle spacer in my “Vine Thorn ” Pattern all my file work is done by hand with a chain saw file and a half round file, so you can see I put a lot of time into every knife for fit and finish to make them a collectible piece of art or something to take out in the field and give it some use, all my knives will last many lifetimes and can be enjoyed for many generation to come, knife comes with the custom knife sheath made by Carl Thomas of Mississippi, Your custom knife will ship in a knife storage case for when your custom knife is not in use, Shipping is $6.00 for priority mail with insurance.
