Gentleman's Long hunter knife

Forged steel, curly maple, wire inlay
Gentleman's Long hunter knife 2023

Gentleman's Long hunter by Iron John of Iron Tree Forge. This one is spoken for but in the rush for the show never got to photo it individually. 6-1/2 inch 1095 steel blade forged close and hand finished in Iron John's signature scuffed polish. The blade is aged then polished bright then scuff marks made by file remind one of the finest hand writing as they glint across the blade. Tempered hard for outstanding edge holding (stone hone only) this knife will out last us all and become an antique itself one-day. Hand made silver plated brass guard in a simple 18th century pattern of plate and ferrel with file work and engraving. The hand carved curly maple grip and one piece carved molding pommel are inlayed with red brass wire inlay and finished with traditional Aqua fortus stain and hand rubbed oil finish. 11 inches overall. 56-58 Rockwell C determined by 25 years experience file testing. Signed dated by artist, Iron John Logan 2023
