Hornet BUG KNIFE!
This theme knife is of course a fairly nontraditional piece. An impression of a Hornet should creep in some where or at least some kind of bug anyway. The blade is BG-42 with a convex grind and edge. Box Elder burl stabilized by WSSI forms the body capped off by a 416ss ‘bolster’. Stainless wires are heat colored for the legs and held in small copper tubes in the ‘thorax’ so the wood doesn’t split from the torque of the legs. The legs are not attached and simply push in and pull out. The blade is nearly 4 3/4” and it’s about 9” OAL (and it’s 5” wide!). This will come in a canvas zippered case.
The price for this knife is $475 shipped CONUS.
