Mamba Long in the Making

Spring came early this year and pulled Scott into the world of pruning, fertilization, and pest control way earlier than expected. Commissions Scott thought he could finish in February and March got delayed due to a high demand for his arborist skills, but the knives are slowly getting done. Below is a Mamba Scott just completed this week.

This blade frustrated Scott more than once during production. Like a snake, W2 tends to coil when you play with it and has to be straighted a lot, but it certainly does lend itself to beautiful hamons.

The Mamba
Steel: W2 with hamon
Finish: Regal (hand-sanded)
Overall Length: 14 inches
Blade Length: 8 1/8 inches
Guard: Stainless steel

This Mamba is headed to Hawaii, so please don't alert the postal service, as it's illegal to bring snakes onto the island. Then again, snakes made of steel probably pose little threat to the environment . . . well, depending on how you use them:)

Thanks Dennis! Your patience has been greatly appreciated, and we hope you love the knife.
