Summary: I think the C.O.A. tells the story, see below. Pre-owned, properly stored and in mint condition.
From the Maker:
“This unique offering comes from James’ early days between 2011 and late 2012, when he introduced the now copyrighted B-logo crest that is now stamped in every blade. This one measures 7” from tip to guard with a razor sharp hollow grind and our hammermark finish, and it’s hand forged from 3/16” thick high carbon 01 tool steel. The nickel silver guard is soldered in place above the black and maroon fiber with the musk ox horn spacers to boot. The handle is made from a premium walrus ivory artifact that had been utilized by Inuit tribesman as a fishing net weight hundreds, if not thousands, of years ago. The overall length measures 12-1/4” and it comes in a beautiful cattail pouch sheath from Jack Mosher.”
9 photos for review -- as shown, a new black canvas carry case and C.O.A. both included. Thanks and good luck.
