Forged Camp Knife @2010 Michael H. Mara

This high performance hunting / cooking, all-around camp knife features a 4 1/2 blade of W2, with an upswept point and peaked spine for superior grip. The blade design includes a deep, curved ricasso and as-forged finish. The blade is differentially hardened to HRC50 at the spine and HRC63 at the edge, so it will take and hold a supreme edge while being an extremely tough and durable knife. The knife is 9 1/8 overall, with full tang construction, aged Ivory scales with Brass and vulcanized spacers, and three 1/8" Brass pins and lanyard hole. No sheath at this time, but one can be made for an additional cost. $362 Sold
