The Chuck Hawes Custom Copperhead is a classic slip joint design made in the traditional fashion. Rugged Maroon Canvas Micarta handle scales are flush fit to Damascus bolsters over stainless steel liners. The handles house a razor sharp, hand forged Burl pattern Damascus blade and file-worked Damascus back spring.
Brand new directly from Chuck Hawes.
Blade: Hawes hand forged Damascus combines 160 layers of 1095 and L6 high carbon steels creating a unique Burl pattern. The Copperhead-style clip point blade is opened with single nail nick and comes with a razor sharp convex grind. File work along the spine up to the clip adds a custom feel. The blade opens with a pronounced half stop with strong Damascus back spring construction.
Handle: Stainless steel liners support polished Maroon Canvas Micarta handle scales and Damascus steel bolsters all meeting seamlessly. A full length Damascus backs spring rounds out the handle construction and is embellished with the same file work found on the spine of the blade.
Includes cloth pouch for storage.
