Gabe Mabry of the Doberman Forge, located in Albemarle, North Carolina is the maker of this beautiful creation.
This mono steel blade using the highly regarded 80crv2 which is his favorite steel. Itís a low alloy tool steel fairly similar to 5160 toughness with more carbon and similar edge retention to 52100 ball bearing steel. HRC is 61. There is a nice flat area from the heel for the push cutters out there.
The knife has a full tang which is beautifully shaped to allow for a very comfortable and attractively sculpted handle, in this case made from a double-dyed burl. The blade is finished to an extremely high standard as is the handle, resulting in a very unique knife package made for you by a true artisan of the forge.
