The Island Hunter has a stunning piece of mango wood for the handle that will sure be a talking point for anyone you show this knife to. The tiger twist 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 subtle green to match the handle. The leather we used is sourced from one of the oldest tanneries in the USA, Wickett & Craig. The sheath has a hand-tooled stamp pattern from our skilled craftsman. 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.
