The Stoneman – A Custom Trekker

stoneman

This knife is a custom special commission. It is 7 7/8″ overall with a full tang. The person this knife was designed for needed a good all around, versatile hiking/camping blade. The 3 1/2″ long by 1 1/4″ wide flat ground blade gives him what he would need for these purposes.

The blade is 5/32″ thick D-2 High Carbon Tool Steel, considered by many to be the best carbon steel for knife blades. It has a combination of superior abrasion resistance and toughness. It holds an edge very well for a long time. It is not stainless steel so it will rust if it is not looked after!

The bolster is nickel silver (white brass). Liners are cinnamon and black resin impregnated fiber to off-set the desert ironwood handle. The sheath is full cow leather stained dark brown custom handmade for this knife, laced with braided cord.
