Description: Aaron Wilburn, who was honored as a ABS Journeyman Smith in June of 2009, creates knives that mean business and this long hunter is a great example of his work.
The clip point blade was forged to shape from Aaron's own twisted cable damascus. Diagonal bands and undulations travel across the blade, creating a pattern that is subtle and elegant. By forging the blade to shape, Aaron has made the patterns of the damascus complement the grind lines of the knife well.
The handle is formed from amber stag. Stag of this quality and size is becoming increasingly rare. A brass bolster and pommel surround the stag. Red fiber spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The handle feels so natural in the hand, you’ll have a hard time putting it down.
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched sheath. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
