High Country with Triple Dyed Box Elder Burl Handle
About this Custom Edition High Country:
This custom edition, one of a kind, High Country features a fully hand contoured handle. The handle is made of stabilized box elder that has been triple dyed. All wood is stabilized, dying and finishing is done in house. The blade features our "Spider Twist", high carbon damascus pattern. All of our damascus steel is forged in house using 1080 AND 15N20 (2% Nickel). The leather sheath is made from 8 oz, saddle skirting, that comes from Wickett & Craig USA. The sheath has a hand-tooled basket stamp pattern that wraps around the entire sheath. The sheath has been hand wet-formed to provide a nice tight fit for this one of a kind knife.

***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. The wood has been stabilized but with all natural woods, the wood will slightly shrink or expand overtime.
