Description: John Leitch's desk knives will feel as at home in a collection as they will on an executive's desk, or even used in the kitchen as a paring knife.
The ATS-34 stainless steel blade was etched with a relief for his maker's mark. This results in the "satin finish" that has made his work well known. The blade was heat treated by Paul Bos to Rc 59 and will have exceptional edge holding.
The fit between nickel silver bolsters and jet black African blackwood scales is excellent -- without a perceptible seam.
The knife is accompanied by a wet formed custom pouch style leather sheath.
Exceptional work throughout!
