The Flagstaff Hunter:
The Flagstaff Hunter is a full size hunting knife that's built to skin your next big game animal or be a conversation starter at your next business meeting. The exhibition grade ironwood burl wood handle gives this modern knife a timeless look. The black G10 liner adds a subtle accent to the overall knife that is accented by the nickel silver bolster and mosaic pins. The handle has been glued together with commercial grade epoxy to ensure a lifetime of use and memories.
The vortex damascus steel is a very unique and one-off pattern from our skilled blacksmiths. The high-carbon damascus which is made up of 1080 and 15N20 is forged here in our factory in Idaho. No two pieces of damascus are ever the same, making each knife a unique treasure.
The leather sheath is made from 8 oz, saddle skirting that has been dyed a beautiful light brown to compliment the handle. The leather we use is sourced from one of Americas oldest tanneries, Wickett & Craig. The sheath has a full hand-tooled stamp pattern. The sheath has been hand wet-formed to provide a nice tight fit for this one of a kind knife. Each knife is hand forged, ground and made by our team of skilled artisans.

*Just like all things, proper care should be given to the knife blade. We recommend cleaning with warm water and completely drying after use. We recommend applying WD40 or some type of gun oil to the blade immediately after drying to help deter spotting/rusting. Always clean and oil your knife before extended storage. Never store your knife in the leather sheath for extended time periods. The high-carbon nature of this damascus steel is prone to rusting and discoloration if not properly cared for.
*Logo and other markings will be placed on the blade after purchase is made.
