Spider Web Damascus blade with Walrus Ivory and Mammoth tooth spacer

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 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 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 tuch up the cutting edge if your giving it some use in the field, Thats all,, The custom knife is 7-1/8 inches overall with a 3-1/16 inch blade, 2-3/4 inch cutting edge, 7/8″ inch wide and 1/8″ 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 stabilized fossil walrus ivory, The ivory will date from 5,000 to 10,000 thousand years old and was found in the permafrost area of Alaska, The mammoth tooth spacer will date from 10,000 to 20,000 years old and was found in the perma frost region of Siberia Russia, All the brass spacers and guard 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 rat tang construction with a corby nut in the end 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 spacer in my “Sharp Thorn” 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 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
