Brand new directly from Chuck Hawes, USA.

Blade:  Hawes hand forged Damascus combines 180 layers of 1080, 5160 and 15n20 high carbon steels creating a unique Burl pattern. The classic Trapper clip point blade is opened with a single nail nick from the front and comes with a razor sharp convex grind. File work along the length of the spine of the blade adds traction and a custom feel. Opening is smooth with a solid half stop and a moderate back spring strength.

Handle: Stainless steel liners support handsome Red Linen Micarta handle scales and Damascus steel bolsters all fit flush. A full length Damascus back spring is embellished with the same file work found on the spine of the blade rounding out the handle construction.

Hawes Damascus: A high quality, carbon steel Damascus, Chuck Hawes' custom Damascus is a folded, pattern welded steel made from 1080, 5160 and 15n20 high carbon steels. The steels are forge welded, folded and acid etched to achieve a unique layered pattern. Cutting performance will be similar to the carbon steels mentioned above. Care is required to prevent corrosion.
