This is a custom MAB bird trout small hunter made by me, Mark Buzzell (MAB), right here in Maine. This bird trout hunting knife has a damascus blade that is a 200 plus fold “zebra” pattern damascus steel blade, knife is 7 inches overall with a 2-3/4 inch blade, 3/4 inch wide and just over 1/8 thick. 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. This one has a very nice contrast in the damascus making it a real eye catcher. The handle on this one is made from some great looking snake wood with some great grain, knife is a rat tang construction with a corby nut in the pommel, 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 “flame” 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, this is your chance to own a real quality handmade knife. The knife will ship with custom fit leather sheath made by Carl Thomas. The knife will also ship in a zip up knife case. All my custom made knives come with a hand signed COA telling more about the knife, when it was taken off the bench, time spent building and more. USA buyers $6.00 shipping with insurance. SORRY NO INTERNATIONAL SALES
