Mountain Creature

"Mountain Creature" obverse side view in milled 440C high chromium stainless steel blade, hand-engraved carbon steel bolsters, mosaic gemstone handle of blue sodalite and Italian goldstone, hand-carved leather sheath inlaid with blue rayskin
"Mountain Creature"
  • Size: Knife: Length overall: 10.5" (26.7 cm), Blade Length: 6.0" (15.2 cm), Thickness: .190" (4.9 mm)
  • Blade: 440C high chromium martensitic tool steel
  • Bolsters, Fittings: Low Carbon Steel, Hand-Engraved
  • Handle: Gemstone Mosaic in Sodalite and Italian Goldstone
  • Sheath: Ray Skin inlaid in hand-carved Leather
  • Knife: An older, earlier knife of mine, the Mountain Creature is a hybrid of my Rocky Mountain Camp knife (blade) and the handle of the Creature tactical rescue knife. The blade has interesting milling in mirror polished 440C stainless to reduce the weight, and full filework abounds. The bolsters are low carbon steel, hand-engraved. The handle is a gemstone mosaic, of ten pieces of Sodalite gemstone  and Italian Goldstone bands. This is a very difficult handle to make, assemble, match, and properly finish.
  • Sheath: The sheath for this knife had to match and also display the majority of the handle work, so I chose a half-open design, made to protect the cutting edge and point of the blade, yet display and retain the knife with open straps of leather. The leather is dyed medium brown and inlayed with multiple pieces of blue stingray skin, hand-stitched and lacquered for longevity.
  • A striking older, early knife of mine that's nice to visit.
