Lil' Blackwood Hunter

Recommended Posts

It's my pleasure to post, yet, another little hunter today.

Forged from 1" square 5160 stock and given a differential heat treatment.

Hot-blued take-down fittings and a very colorful - as far as Blackwood goes - contoured African Blackwood handle.

Overall length of 8 7/8" with a 4 1/2 inch blade.

Thanks for letting me show!

Great looking blade, the hot bluing really works well with darker woods!

Karl, the finish you put on your wood handles is superb... would you mind lending a bit of insight to your process?

I've never put any finish on my handles -well, not really a finish.

I take all my handles through 220-400-800-1200-1500. Then a light buff with a clean loose wheel. Depending on the wood type, I use a light coat of a finishing paste wax. Then buff again with a clean loose wheel.

I also recommend to my customers to clean their handles and let dry. Finish with a coat of finishing paste wax.

First off beautiful knife, I love to look at your knives.

They are very inspirational as I am trying to get into takedowns which you seem to have mastered.
