This knife was a special order from the beginning. Steve and the customer were looking at the piece of Beech and noticed the stain that resembled a wolf. So, the customer commissioned it on the spot. The wolf changed shape a little bit, as wood has a tendency to do when you start shaping and sanding, but is still there. The back side resembles a bird’s beak.
The blade is 5160 with a mustard finish and edge hardened. The butt cap is mokume. There is cross hatch file work on the spine and 2 mosaic pins. The third pin was custom designed to look more like an animal’s eye. Red, white and blue spacers give the piece a patriotic touch.
