Description: Mastersmith P.J. Tomes creates utilitarian knives of true perfection. This Model 2B Hunter features a sway back blade inspired by William Scagel (one of the best known makers of the early 20th century). The handle was inspired by Michael Price (among the greatest of the knifemakers of late 1800s San Francisco). Combining the visual and tactile sense of these two renowned makers results in a captivating hunter that you won't want to put down.
The swayback blade was hand forged from 52100 carbon steel. Many makers and collectors feel this steel to be among the greatest steels used on knives today. The edge holding and sharpness are beyond compare. The satin finished blade is distal tapered, creating a knife that immediately becomes an extension of your hand when held. The 416 stainless steel guard is perfectly fit to the blade. The linen micarta handle is sculpted for a sure, comfortable grip. Accompanied by a hand stitched leather sheath. Exceptional work throughout.
