Description: Aaron Wilburn was honored as a ABS Journeyman Smith in June of 2009. After attending a seminar lead by Mastersmith Joe Keesler on rasp knives and Joe's Brut de Forge style, Aaron was immediately inspired.
Aaron began by forging the random pattern damascus from 52100 and 15N20 carbon steels. This choice of steels both provides excellent contrast and edge retention. The blade was then closely forged to shape. The integral choil is nicely rounded for an extremely comfortable grip. Along the front, it shows the continued damascus pattern. The blade was differentially heat treated, resulting in a soft, supportive spine, and keen, long lasting edge.
The full tang is distal tapered for optimal balance. Red fiber spacers assist the black canvas micarta grips to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The carved handle is nicely sculpted to swell at the palm and toward the butt. It is finished with two hidden bolt rivets and a lanyard loop. This will make a serious field knife for the avid hunter, but will feel at home in most any collection.
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched leather sheath formed from 8-9oz horse hide.
Excellent fit and finish throughout.
