Description: Steve Wheeler is a custom knife maker from New Zealand who primarily crafts hunting, fishing and sport knives, but also enjoys making swords, dirks, and culinary knives. This knife has been in a master smith's personal collection and has been meticulously cared for.
The blade features a long, graceful drop point, and has been meticulously polished to a mirror finish. The unique curve of the blade makes it an excellent carving knife for a hearty cut of meat or fowl. The bolsters and end butt caps have been sculpted from high-quality brass, the sinuous curves complimenting the dramatic swell of the handle perfectly. The scales are polished to a high luster, bringing out the subtle grain of the dark cocobolo. The handle scales are set on a full tang for durability and the piece is completed with three brass pins.
