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 D2 semi-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. D2 is known for its ability to hold an exceptional edge while requiring just a little bit of additional care -- to prevent rusting, it is important to dry the blade after use. The blade was heat treated by Paul Bos to Rc 59 and will have exceptional edge holding.
The fit between nickel silver bolsters and black linen Micarta handle scales is excellent -- without a perceptible seam.
The knife is accompanied by a wet formed, hand stitched custom pouch style leather sheath.
Exceptional work throughout!
