Hi Folks

It's been a while since I posted anything new here... hopefully you'll like the two variants on this new design. It's taken me since Jan to get these finished to where I want them :)

Introducing the 'Gaea' - a large harpoon clip hunting knife (new design for 2020). This one features a hidden tang with a handle in beautifully figured Maple burl. The Maple has been stabilized - a process where the wood is impregnated with resin making it stronger, weather resistant and less prone to cracking or warping. The steel is Böhler K110 carbon steel - a high grade version of the classic D2 knife steel. It has been acid etched, stained and given a stonewash patina. A rounded brass finger guard sits proud of the handle compliments the curvaceous handle. A secure clip-close sheath will give you piece of mind when carrying it in the field. This is something a little different and will certaily stand out from the crowd on your next hunting trip.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Blade: Böhler K110 carbon steel (HRC +/- 60) with stonewash patina
  • Blade thickness: 4.5mm (0.177")

  • Overall length: 267mm (10.5")
  • Handle material: Stabilised Maple Burl
  • Fittings: Brass
  • Hidden tang with vulcanised fibre and brass liners behind a brass finger guard. Comes with a custom fitted sheath as seen.
