David Lisch, M.S. Flying Dragons Damascus Hunter, Sambar Stag, Rowe Leather Sheath (SOLD)
This Damascus Hunter by David Lisch, M.S. was just acquired directly from him at the ICCE Show in Kansas City in September 2016. David's work is in high demand, and difficult to locate in the secondary market. This knife was done in the Brut de Forge style, and is a great example of what he is known for - Damascus. David calls this blade "Flying Dragons" Damascus. It is forged from 15N20 and 1080 carbon steels. The pommel is a pigtail curled into a ring, that serves as an extension to the handle, a place for your pinky, or a "pull" to remove it from the sheath - it is perfectly suited for this style knife. The handle is two outstanding slabs of Sambar Stag, with amazing color, grain and texture. Under the Sambar scales are leather liners. His mark of "D Lisch MS" appears in script on the spine of the blade. Accompanying the knife is a pouch-style leather sheath, made by Kenny Rowe of Rowe's Leather in Hope, AR. This is a great piece from David. His fit and finish, attention to detail, construction, and balance are superb. Don't pass this one up - it won't be around for too long.
