Fusing the warm, rugged charm of olivewood with a potent, sinister-looking blade, Timber Rattler's distinctive "Ranchero" Fixed Blade Knife is a dangerous beauty that never ceases to impress, in both style and performance. The Ranchero's keen 7 1/2" stainless steel blade features an unusually slim profile for a knife of this size, highlighted by keen beveled edges, sleek lines and a piercing point that's almost dagger-like in intensity. Handsome scalloping along the rear of the blade spine offers a more traditionally elegant touch, smartly offsetting the blade's overall menacing form. And make no mistake - the Ranchero's blade is resilient and razor sharp, packing ample bite to back up its ominous aesthetic "bark." The blade is wed with an exquisite olivewood handle, intersected by graceful parallel grains and charming natural shades of tawny, russet and umber. A delicate rosette comprised of fine multicolored orbs is set carefully in the middle of the olivewood, which is bookended by contrasting stacked wood spacers and gleaming brass guard and pommel. With its lovely embossed floral patterns, the included genuine leather sheath enhances the Ranchero's allure, while providing tough, lasting protection. On the trail, in the display case or both, the Timber Rattler Ranchero is an outstanding all-around fixed blade knife with beauty and brawn to spare.
