This hunter in the first one finished in a recent batch of knives in 80crv2, which i have had for a while but not worked with yet really. Stock on this one is .125 thick. The knife is 8.75 inches overall with a 4 inch cutting edge. I decided to try something different and even though its a stock removal knife, i stuck it in the forge and hammer textured the ricasso area to see what it looked like. Its different and looks OK on the knife, so i will call it a win this time. The handle is some double dyed yellow and black box elder burl, and the bolsters are some scrap Aerospace grade carbon fibre i picked up, its very dense and completely void free. I like the look of the carbon, but its terrible to work with, super itchy and dusty, and hell on bandsaw blades. The blade is finished with, as usual, an 800 grit cork belt with green compound. I am still working on a sheath, but so far i am very happy with this knife. I would love to keep it for myself actually but that doesnt pay the bills. Im pretty sure its sold already but i just have to allow myself to part with it. Sorry for the poor pictures, i have been too lazy to build a light box yet and its dark outside.
