Description: Blackmoore is made by Seattle native, Jeff Driscoll. Driscoll brought his full skill and attention to detail to creating this masterpiece which will feel as at home out in the field as in any collection.
The multi-bar mosaic pattern damascus blade was forged from carbon steels by Gregory Verizhnikov in the Ukraine. Gregory is an armorer, sword maker, blacksmith, knifemaker, and mosaic damascus maker living in Lviv. The intricate pattern is immediately captivating and draws attention for closer examination. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, we recommend camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation.
The handle is hand sculpted African blackwood (Dalbergia melanoxylon). African blackwood is among the most dense, durable woods anywhere in the world and is highly prized for its jet black appearance. The African blackwood is sanded to 600 grit and sealed with acrylic to improve durability and water resistance. Jeff drew inspiration from Mastersmith Jay Hendrickson when constructing the handle. The handle swells at the palm and meets nicely with front and rear stag bolsters to provide a comfortable grip. Fileworked nickel silver spacers add excellent contrast between the handle and bolsters.
The sheath, also handmade by Driscoll, combines carved sapelle wood with a wet-formed leather upper which holds the knife securely in place. The Scandi-style belt loop is set on a swivel so the sheath moves out of the way when sitting down.
This knife will be equally comfortable on your belt while out in the field or right at home in a private collection.
