This handmade, drop point, fixed blade hunting knife was made by Dave Ricke, from West Bend, WI, and is in excellent condition. It is made from a 1/8 thick piece of what we believe is CPM154 steel (although it could be 440C or ATS-34), with a satin finish. The handle appears to be Sambar Stag - and a really nice pair of matching scales.
They are pinned in 2 places with Mosaic pins. The blade is in unused and unsharpened condition, and has some file-work done on the spine.The bolster is 416 stainless steel, and has some very fine, hard-to-see, marks from insertion and removal from the sheath. There is also a 416SS lined lanyard hole.
It comes with a leather pouch-type belt sheath, made by Bob Schrap of Wauwatosa, WI. A great knife for EDC, or for the hunting season. This knife comes from a life-long collection of knives that were well-taken care of, and with very few exceptions, properly stored. You are always welcome to contact me for additional pictures.
