Item No 04 is a gorgeous pattern welded Rifleman's knife. The 16" blade is welded from a mix of 1095, L-6 and a small amount of meteoric iron in a waterfall pattern. The blade has a single 1/2 blade length fuller on each side.
As you can see the patterning has great contrast and is very easily seen..This is a great knife!
The one piece "Bovine Ivory" grip is finished in shade of red, purple and brown. Quite attractive. The mounts are file worked phosphor bronze and the grip is set with bronze studs in a diaper pattern.
With an overall length of 21 3/4" this is not a small knife! Wine coloured leather sheath. This truly is a eye catching knife in more ways than one..
Please Note: This knife is featured in my 4th book: "The Custom Blade: Tools and Techniques for the Established Craftsman" and a letter of authenticity will be provided for provenance.
