Custom spay point utility, spalted hemlock burl


From my shop in the mountains of North Idaho.

Recycled saw steel from a defunct Idaho lumber mill 1/8 inch thick, 8670 tool steel is reground, oil heat treated, tempered and custom etched, this steel holds a great edge while being easy to sharpen back to “hair poppin” sharp. A blade shape for all tasks, especially large game hunting. The wood on the handle I found while out elk hunting a few years ago, a rare burl from a dead hemlock tree.

  • Over all length is 7.75 inches, cutting edge is 3.75 inches.
  • Handle is stabilized spalted hemlock burl… beautiful ! with black liners and peened brass pin.
  • Horizontal carry heavy leather sheath is hand tooled and sewn. Knife “pops” into sheath and stays put. Worn on the left front for right hand draw, concealable under a long shirt.
  • Includes sharpening strop, see how to strop on the” Knife Care” page.
