This is our version of a more modern Nessmuk style trapper knife. We carried over the flowing lines and shape of the traditional 'muk and added a finger guard, more durable handle scales, and a differential heat treatment for durability.
The 'Muk is an all around great outdoor knife style that has seen over a century of use.The wide head of the blade is great for skinning and can be used for scraping or as spooning out substance. The curved blade is thinner and excellent for slicing. The curved handle makes for a comfortable and secure grip. We have added a finger notch and guard to the original design to give a little more confidence when your fingers are so close to a razor sharp blade.
The blade has a forced patina over the auto hamon that gives the knife plenty of character and some rust protection.
The scales are tough natural micarta that will age beautifully over time. They are attached with three stainless steel Corby bolts and 2 ton epoxy to ensure a lifetime of dependable use.
The knife includes a hand tooled and hand stitched black leather belt sheath. Right handed model. If you need a left handed model or would prefer a kydex sheath contact me directly.
*this knife is not stainless and may rust if not properly taken care of.
