Mike McClure’s exceptional hunter has a long, slender carbon steel blade. The blade was hand forged to shape from 5160 carbon steel and was flat ground. By differentially heat treating the blade, Mike assures exceptional edge holding — with a strong supportive spine, and hard, keen edge. Rope pattern filework on the spine assures a secure thumb purchase, even when hands get wet. Both the blade and full tang are distal tapered for optimal balance. The nickel silver guard meets perfectly to the blade and handle. Sambar stag of this quality has become increasingly difficult to come by. The handle is finished off with a lanyard hole and carved nickel silver pins. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
