With its tastefully simple form and tried-and-true materials, the Primitive Hunter Fixed Blade Knife from Timber Wolf is an indispensable ally when you're deep in back country. Add in the striking whirls, gentle ripples and brilliantly contrasting lines of the Damascus steel blade, guard and pommel, and it's equally well suited for display - on its own or in a fine knife collection. The 7 1/4" Damascus steel clip point blade is razor sharp and more than capable of field dressing a monster buck, skinning a rabbit, chopping branches and countless other demanding field tasks. More than just a proficient workhorse, the blade features numerous elegant accents like file worked scalloping and impressive blood grooves. The blade's myriad contrasting patterns is the result of a centuries old technique that involves painstakingly firing, folding, hammering and acid etching high carbon steel for hours - often days on end - until the desired figure is achieved. Made by skilled metalsmiths in primitive workshops, each Damascus blade is unique and wholly hand forged - no robots, no computerized mechanization. Such rustic, extremely personal attention to detail is only natural for the "Primitive" Hunter. The handsome heartwood handle snubs fancy ornamentation in favor of a clean, no frills design. Its wide ridges afford an excellent hand feel, and its kaleidoscope of natural walnut, caramel, pecan and burnt umber hues beautifully offsets the Damascus steel pommel and guard. Housed in its rugged genuine leather belt sheath, the Primitive Hunter is easy to carry afield. Impeccably balanced and weighted, it's also a pleasure to wield. Of course you can also leave it unsheathed for friends and family to admire in a charming display. Regardless of what you decide to do with it, rest assured Timber Wolf's Primitive Hunter Fixed Blade Knife is in it for the long haul. With proper care it'll be by your side for a lifetime and beyond.
