Description: John Leitch's desk knife will feel as at home in a collection as on your desk -- or even used in the kitchen!
The high performance ATS-34 stainless steel blade was etched with a relief for his maker's mark. The blade was heat treated by Paul Bos to Rc 59 and will have exceptional edge holding, perfect for opening envelopes and boxes or doing any other detail work.
Nickel silver bolsters are perfectly fit to mother of pearl handle scales. The bolsters were hand scroll engraved, one knife at a time, by Rex Pedersen, a longtime member of the Engravers Guild of America.
The knife is accompanied by a letterbox style custom sheath made from bullhide leather.
Exceptional work throughout!
