PLEASE NOTE: We take our photos in natural light outdoors and as a result there are sometimes reflections or shadows or glare shown in the blades. In person none of these exist; we will say so in the description if it may be otherwise. Please read our Terms below for details.This SUPERB custom-made hunting knife is as solid and useful as any you'll find ANYWHERE. In terms of its design, materials, craftsmanship and condition, it's got everything one could want in a hunting knife and much more. Its maker lives here in Southern California and goes by the handle HAWK. Its blade was completely hand-forged from exceptionally fine carbon steel by starting with an old Ford Model-T leaf spring, an excellent source of some of the finest blades ever made. Blade was made thick and strong, as you can see from the photos, with a BEAUTIFUL little finger-rest integral to the bottom of the blade, enable a level of precision and control that other knives can only dream about and even the costliest store-bought German knives and the like can only tip their hats.
I've used it in the field as a hunting knife, where it performed superbly on muledeer. Condition of the piece is excellent, with no problems of any kind. This handle has been sculpted, smoothed and shaped to conform to the human hand better than 99% of the knives I've ever seen and I've seen a LOT of them. You could use this knife all day to skin game and it would not leave you fatigued--a rare trait in a knife at any price.
It has an incredibly sharp and sturdy blade 4" long (knife is 8.5" overall) with a full and tapered tang. Comes in Hawk's own very fine leather sheath, which is also of high quality and fits the knife like a glove; he didn't always make sheaths for his knives but when he did he did so with surprising skill.
This piece is perfect for the serious hunter or collector, who has wanted to use the finest possible custom knife in the field but didn't want to damage an expensive, investment-grade knife. You could pay a lot more for a new, uninteresting knife from your local Army-Navy store, but you wouldn't get the same beauty, performance or quality.
An excellent value on a top-quality knife that is as much a conversation piece as it is beautiful and efficient. A world-class knife at an affordable price and one that will instantly become an heirloom for user and collector alike.
