The Puma "Knight Owl"

Scott recently spent some time with his master Jason Knight honing his knife making skills prior to completing his Journeyman test knives. The result of three days work at Jason's shop is the Puma "Knight Owl".

Puma "Knight Owl"
Steel: W2 with hamon
Overall Length: 11 1/4 inches
Blade Length: 6 1/4 inches
Handle: Stabilized Curly Walnut
Guard: 416 Stainless Steel
Sheath: Custom leather

The blade is all Scott, was forged out of W2, has a Japanese style hamon, and is as graceful and predatory as the cat for which it was named. The handle has a lot of Jason's influence and the knife was completed during some late night sessions in Jason's shop, so we're calling this Puma the "Knight Owl" version.

Scott just started lining his sheaths, and this is one of his nicest to date.

This Puma is off to one of our favorite dealers. Thanks Les!
