The 'WJ' Compact Recurve Hunter - Maple Burl
  • The 'WJ' Compact Recurve Hunter - Maple Burl

    SKU: 21022

    Named after one of the last great ivory hunters out of Mozambique - Wally Johnson.

    A gentle recurve leading to a broad, dropped point hunting blade. Crafted in Bohler N690 stainless - this blade not only looks great but will perform too!

    A rounded brass finger guard and a full, tapered tang handle that has been shaped from stabilized and dyed Maple Burl. Stabilization is a process whereby the wood is impregnated with resin. This makes it nearly impervious to warping or cracking and is also weather resistent. Tough and beautiful!

    A finely detailed mosaic pin in brass and nickel silver complements the fine swirls of the Maple burl and a composite brass and stainless steel lanyard tube ensures that this tool is practical for the field.

    This is something a little special and will certainly stand out from the crowd on your next hunting trip.
