FOSSIL CORAL HANDLE 52100 BEARING STEEL FILE WORKED BLADE HUNTER

This custon hunting knife is made by me, Mark Buzzell (MAB), right here in Maine. This great looking knife is 7-1/4 inches overall with a 3-1/4 inch blabe with a 3″ inch cutting edge by 1/8 inch thick and 7/8″ inch wide, The steel used is 52100 bearing steel known for holding a great edge. Knife blade is marked with my MAB logo as the maker of this fine knife. This knife was made from a bar stock 52110 steel billet.  The knife billets are shaped, ground, polished, oil quenced hardened and tempered to rockwell 59. The handle on this one is made from stabilized fossil coral. The fossil coral is found in oceans around the world and will date to 15,000 to 20,000 years old or more. I used two custom copper pins in the handles and two more custom pins in the guards, 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 “Sharp Thorn” 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. Knife was hand sanded from 220 grit to 2,000 grit to put a marror shine on the blade and handle. 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 knife. Your custom knife will come with the custom brown leather belt sheath made by Carl Thomas.  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 lifetimes 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.
