The 'Corbett' Hunter - Maple Burl
Inspired by and named after the legendary man-eating tiger hunter Jim Corbett. Long, slim and with flowing lines - if I was confronted by one of those man-eating beasties, and my rifle was no longer with me or useful, this would be the tool I would fall back on.
The hidden-tang design ensures a relatively light and nimble blade for its length and thickness. Made in reliable N690 stainless steel with a nickel silver guard and handle pin. The spacer is in Elforyn 'Super Tusk' synthetic ivory - look closely and you can see the natural looking grain. The handle is sculpted from stabilised Maple Burl. The stabilizing process impregnates the wood with an extremely durable resin - this makes the wood virtually warping or cracking, water resistant and a lot more hard-wearing than natural wood.
The luxurious sheath features an ivory colored bull-frog skin insert with a plush chamois leather liner.
