Right on time!

Here's the big Hunter/Skinner is some of the nicest Raindrop Pattern Damascus I've yet seen.  Hand forged in the USA.  Raindrop Damascus Blade 5". Random Damascus Pattern Guard/Bolster, length 1" at top, 1.5" at the bottom. Overall length 10.25". Blade width 3/16". Handle width at butt 7/8". Matched Birdseye Lace Redwood Burl handle scales, hand rubbed 100% pure Tung Oil finish. Mosaic Pins. Filework style decoration on blade spine. Balance point is on the dividing line between wood and steel.  Perfect.

Of all the knives I've handled that had the large finger cut-out, this one feels about the best in hand.  That, plus the fact that I love Raindrop Damascus above all other types for several reasons, make this perhaps my favorite knife so far this year.

That is just awesome!  That raindrop pattern is just too cool...and those slabs...breathtaking and more.
Amazing work, BH.  I just know how that knife feels. Soft strength.

Any big elk or moose would be right proud to be skinned out with that knife. Exquisite.

Hey RB...a good selling point...

"Elk will line up at your tent flap to go under THIS knife!"

I like it!
