Pele - A Damascus Hunter

Pele was supposed to be Scott's new carry knife, but (as oft happens) he decided she was simply too beautiful to keep. This hunter, named for the Hawaiian Goddess of Fire, is based on our popular Zulu model. Pele is a little more pointy and delicate than a Zulu, the clip comes back a tad further, and the spine is thinner.

Steel: 1095/15n20 Damascus
Overall Length: 9 7/8 inches
Blade Length: 4 3/4 inches
Guard: 416 stainless w/spacers
Handle: Stabilized Curly Koa
Sheath: Leather Drop

Pele has a 416 stainless guard with G-10 and stainless steel spacers.

All of Scott's guards are press fit.

The stabilized curly Koa handle material is edemic to Hawaii and . . . 

. . . the pattern in the Damascus is reminiscent of a lava flow.

Thanks for looking.
