Description: The Loveless style Drop Point Hunter is perhaps the quintessential hunting knife throughout the world. Loveless developed a hunting knife shape that just works exceptionally well. This Deon Nel 3" Drop Point Hunter is no different.
Award winning South African knifemaker Deon Nel is considered among the best Loveless style knifemakers anywhere. His understanding of the Loveless designs and sense of balance is particularly good.
Both the blade and full tang are distal tapered for a perfect balance. The Bohler N690 stainless steel blade was meticulously hollow ground and mirror polished. The blade is razor sharp. N690 ensures a keen, long lasting edge with good resistance to chipping. It is a great choice for high performance use knives.
Maroon Micarta scales are set on the distal tapered full tang for strength and durability. Red vulcanized fiber spacers add a nice contrast. The handle is perfectly contoured for a secure, comfortable grip that you won't want to put down. The handle is completed with two Corby bolts and a steel lined lanyard hole. The 304 stainless steel guard meets perfectly to the Micarta handle scales.
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched cowhide sheath.
Exceptional work throughout.
