    Hello to All,

    Here is another one of my Humpback Hunters.

    The Blade is CPM 154 CM .141 thick and 3.625 from tip to bolsters, and O/A is 8.25. It has been heat treated to 60-61 rc with a cryo quench and tempered twice for two hrs. The blade was polished and then brush finished to 1200 grit. The tang has a nice tapered tang. I added an angle file pattern for thumb placement and for looks. I think it looks good anyway. This handle design is very comfortable.

    Bolsters are dovetailed nickel silver pinned and soldered with total saturation of solder, and NO!! pin holes.

    Handle is Ironwood that has a lot of chatoyancy, red liners, Corby rivets, and lanyard hole.

    I will build the sheath upon request either Right or Left hand, two tone or one color, basket weave, fish scale, or groovy grooves.

    Asking $295.00 with custom sheath, and $15.00 conus shipping. Thank you for looking. Alan

    Very nice work. I applaud you for offering a left or right handed sheath. I wish other makers would do the same.

    I agree with you on the knife - very nice work.

    Bones, if you would get smart and cut your left arm off, you wouldn't have to worry about getting the right sheath. :D

    As always, nice looking work ! And since we are commenting about sheaths, Alan's are not only beautifully tooled and stitched but are functional and securely snaps the knife in place. Great package!

    Alan's knives are fantastic! I own one of his humpbacks and the F&F is up there with the best and the knife holds in the hand perfectly (his sheaths are darn nice as well). You know he's good when you can see his work in the new Knives 2013 book! :thumbup:

    Speaking from experience I can attest to the quality and beauty of Alan's knives.

    Hell, if for no other reason buy the knife just to get your hands on one of his sheaths.

    I sure appreciate that Jvan. This sure is an amazing knife. I have it setting here on the kitchen table and every time I walk by it I have to pick it up. I will have to improve on my photography because these pics do this knife no justice at all really. Alan
