    Here's a great hunter from my good bud, Mike Malosh, Forged from a hunk of my damascus with fossil walrus handle. Did some serious work for me this fall/winter.

    Some exceptional work here, as always...

    I guess I'll toss this one into the mix, just because I loved that piece of ironwood, and it felt so nice in the hand...

    You are correct, Sir. I do wish it were mine. But, I have Russ making me something similar, and he's threatening to have it done pretty soon. ;)

    Damn, Fisk is tough to follow. This wasn't designed to be a hunter, but a hunter wants one as a hunter.

    Z-wear with compression curl Koa. Black g-10 guard.
