Description: John Leitch's desk knife will feel as at home in a collection as on your desk -- or even used in the kitchen!
The high performance A2 carbon steel blade was etched with a relief for his maker's mark. The blade was heat treated by Paul Bos to Rc 59 and will have exceptional edge holding, perfect for opening envelopes and boxes or doing any other detail work.
Nickel silver bolsters are meticulously hand engraved, one knife at a time, by Rex Pedersen, a longtime member of the Engravers Guild of America. The fit between nickel silver bolsters and the mother of pearl scales is excellent.
The knife is accompanied by a letterbox style custom sheath made from bullhide leather.
Exceptional work throughout!
