High Country Hunter
« on: September 16, 2016, 08:58:10 AM »
That is what my friend Tim Olt calls this model.  The steel is CPM 154CM, at 61 RC.  Blade is 3.5 inches, the fat antique Micarta handle is 4.5 inches.  Scalpel sharp.
Doug Haas made the leather.  His work is alway top shelf.
This one is for processing dead animals.

Nice.

Looks great.  Nice size for the task and the guard is "just right".

One big reason I have my knives made to order, is the handle.  Most makers put a handle on that is just too short, too thin, or shaped wrong.  There are many good quality production knives out there, and spec handmade ones, that I just can't use because of the handles.

With those meaty hands I don't wonder why you have an issue with most handles... LOL.

That's beauty right there. Not too flamboyant. :)

Yeah. I can imagine the live ones not being too cooperative  ;D
