The Kilgore Moose:
Named after the location Schenk Knives owner, Norm Schenk, killed his Idaho Moose, this is built for big game! The stabilized box elder was harvested, processed and stabilized in our factory to ensure top quality. The handle features a cool accent of G10 and carbon fiber to add a modern flair to a classic knife The handle has been glued together with commercial grade epoxy and fastened using brass mosaic pins.
The streams and stones damascus steel is a perfect fit for the nature you will find the moose roaming. 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 subtle blue. 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 along the edge of the sheath and features a blue thread. 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.
