Hand Forged Hunting and Skinning Knife 

Ottawa Amboyna Skinner @ 2008 Michael H. Mara

This frontier style hunting / cooking knife features a 4 blade of 3/16" 1095, with a curved, upswept point and decorative filework on the spine. The blade design includes a deep, curved ricasso, forged and etched finish, and a convex ground edge. The blade is differentially hardened, with the edge hardened to  HRC60, and the spine dead soft, for rugged toughness and superior edge-holding capability. It is very light and quick in the hand. The knife is 8 3/8 overall, with full tang construction, Exhibition grade Amboyna Burl scales and 2 Nickel silver pins. Currently there is no sheath, but one can be made, for additional cost. $342 Sold
