Description: Jim's knives are as sturdy as they are elegant. A hunter himself, as well as a backwoodsman, his knives have been heavily tested in the field over the years yet are dramatic enough for any collection.
The stout blade was forged from carbon steels into a pattern that James calls "Leopard" Damascus. Leopard's spots travel across the steel. The handle is sculpted from gemsbok horn. Much of it is left with the natural texture of the horn, creating a very secure and comfortable hold. The fittings throughout using matching Damascus. The fit and finish is excellent. Perfect balance in the hand. Numbered 128.
This work of art is the most beautiful knife I have. Some would say this knife is expensive but as a work of art it is far more valuable to me then any other work of art that would cost many times more money...DD
