F&S Hunter - Laminated
This is the model I made for Field & Stream Magazine, April/May 2018 issue, and featured on the cover of the Field & Stream Total Knife Manual. The 4-1/8 " blade is long enough to handle skinning and cleaning of game, with a point fine enough for detail work. The tang is also fully tapered for better balance.
The Laminated forged blade is an 80CRV2 core with 410 stainless sides. I have left natural forge texture at the spine and hand finished bevels. The blade bevels are hollow ground for a wonderfully thin cutting edge.
The handle is stabilized cherry burl with black micarta pins and carbon fiber lanyard tube. I harvested this burl I found while hiking and it has been drying in my shop for almost two years. Hand-fitted and moulded leather pouch sheath is right handed.
Blade Length: 4-1/8", Overall Length: 8-3/4"
Note: there are a couple of these available, and although the figure in the wood is very similar, the photo here may not be the exact knife you will receive.
