Ladder Pattern Damascus Stag handle 8"Chef

This one is truly a beauty and treasure to last a lifetime.

Sambar stag is the gold standard for horn handles.  With unparrrelled beauty and density, this rare horn makes for a classic, timeless knife.

The blade is hand-forged ladder pattern Damascus steel; combining 1095 tool steel and 15N20 nickel tool steel.  These hand ground blades have a heft and a comfortable handle shape inspired by Western style hunting knives of Jackson Hole and the Rocky Mountain region. 

Each knife has a nickel silver bolster that is pressure fitted to the blade with two cutlery rivets, an epoxy bond to assure lifetime durability, and a beautiful center mosaic pin.  

Each knife comes with a custom made welted leather sheath and exemplifies the refined detail that New West KnifeWorks has become known for.

THESE KLNIVES ARE MADE FROM CARBON TOOL STEEL AND REQUIRE EXTRA CARE TO PROTECT THEM FROM RUST.  Use will increase the contrast between high nickel 15N20 steel and the 1095 steel thus evolving the beauty of this handmade product.

These knives are made “over the hill” from Jackson Hole in our custom shop in Idaho Falls, Id.  The entire knife is handmade at our facility from forging the Damascus billet to stitching the sheath.  Our knifemakers are the leading producers of carbon Damascus steel in the world and have over forty years of experience in making knives.  Our unique small production, custom process allows us to make the finest handmade kitchen knives in the world at a fantastic price
