Description: Doug Noren was welcomed as Mastersmith at the 2004 Blade Show. His work is exceptional, drawing heavily on the work of the late William Scagel. More so than nearly any other maker, William Scagel's knives have captured the imagination of American knife collectors, with the unique shape and appearance.
This bird and trout is very true to Scagel's designs from the carbon steel upswept blade to the crown stag handle with stacked spacers. Doug chose to follow the color themes used by Scagel, combining leather with steel, brass and red and black fiber spacers. Two central sections of fossil mammoth ivory bring in tremendous interest. The resulting hand is both dramatic and extremely comfortable. The front of the brass guard has been beveled and fits perfectly to the 1084 blade. The blade has been meticulously hand satin finished. The fit and finish is exceptional.
