Journey through the dramatic landscapes in "Buckhorn" country
Timber Wolf's "Buckhorn" Hunting Knife is a breathtaking landscape of contrasting colors and textures - craggy staghorn hills gently sloping above silken black buffalo horn plains, which skirt a turbulent, swirling Damascus steel sea. Exquisitely handcrafted and beaming with rustic charm, this remarkable fixed blade demands attention and draws gazes in any knife collection or cutlery display. But don't let its extraordinary beauty fool you; after all, it's often the most breathtaking landscapes that prove the deadliest...
"Lock horns" with any task - the Buckhorn dominates them all!
The Buckhorn is without question rock-solid and field-capable, boasting a rugged full tang blade, hand-forged forged from Damascus steel and finely honed to yield a razor sharp edge. Thanks to the Buckhorn's ideal weight distribution and ergonomically contoured handle, the blade is exceptionally easy to control. Add the versatile trailing point blade profile, and you've got a knife that's perfect for field dressing, skinning and countless other jobs that demand both power and finesse.
A handle with the grace of a stag, unyielding brawn of a buffalo
Comprised of genuine staghorn (deer antler) and buffalo horn scales separated by contrasting brass spacers, the Buckhorn's handle is as gratifying to view as it is to grasp. Each handle scale is delicately polished to highlight the natural materials' raw grain and subtle hues. Like fine oil-finished ebony, the buffalo horn is velvety smooth and dark, cloaked in deep onyx black with occasional wisps of rich umber. Burnt jigging beautifully offsets the staghorn's warm shades of cream and ivory.
Hand-forged artistry - machines could never yield Damascus steel this spectacular
Skilled artisans carefully fashion each Buckhorn handle, and it shows; the steadfast attention paid to every detail is undeniable. Similarly, the Damascus steel blade's near-hypnotic whirlwind of ripples, waves and stratified lines is clearly the result of a master's hand - not robotics, mechanization or automation. The alluringly chaotic, precisely imprecise patterning on every Buckhorn blade is wholly unique - like a fingerprint or snowflake. Seasoned bladesmiths painstakingly and repeatedly fire, fold and hammer weld two distinct varieties of high carbon steel, and a final acid etching highlights the vivid contrasts in the resulting layers. The centuries-old process is slow and meticulous, but once you see the Buckhorn in action, we think you'll agree it was well worth the trouble!
The Buckhorn's finest materials can't be seen - only experienced
There's no question - Timber Wolf's Buckhorn Hunting Knife combines some of the best materials in modern bladecraft. But despite the rustic charm of the staghorn, the simple grace of the buffalo horn and the radiant allure of the Damascus steel, the Buckhorn's finest materials are the unseen blood, sweat and tears poured into each one by the master artisans who built them. Experience this stunning bladed masterwork for yourself, and we think you'll agree.
