This custom modified drop point hunting knife is made by me, Mark Buzzell (MAB), right here in Maine. This great looking custom knife is 7-3/4 inches overall with a 3-5/16 inch blabe with a 3-3/16″ inch cutting edge by just over 1/8 inch thick and 1-5/16″ inch wide, The damascus used is a 200 plus fold tiger stripe pattern damascus steel. The custom 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 is made from Exhibition grade snakewood. I used three custom brass pins and in the handles, 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 “Vine” pattern and the top of the handle in my “Walking Lizard” 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 custom 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.
