Description: John Leitch's desk knife will feel as at home in a collection as on your desk -- or even used in the kitchen as a utility knife! From opening packages and letters to slicing up your lunch, this knife has you covered!
The ATS-34 stainless steel blade was etched with a relief for his maker's mark. This results in a "damascene" pattern that has made his work well known. The stainless steel blade will have exceptional edge holding. The spine was nicely rounded for comfort when choking up on the knife.
Cocobolo handle scales are secured to the full tang using nickel silver pins. The scales are fit perfectly to nickel silver bolsters. The thin profile handle is very comfortable and keeps the knife lightweight.
To keep the knife protected, a hand stitched leather sheath is included.
Nice work throughout!
