This knife was made for my daughter Suzanne who is an avid hunter. It isn't getting much torture testing because her favorite activity with it is showing it off. Can't say that really upsets me though.
The blade is made from 5/32" ATS 34 stainless steel bar stock, heat treated to Rockwell 60. It's a tad hard to sharpen but it holds its edge forever (almost). Scales (handle) are shed white tail deer antler. I was fortunate to have a section with a curvature similar to the curvature of the blade. This one was treated with rennisance wax but I now either use acrylic stabilizing or a sealer for natural handle materials.
