Dickie Robinson, M.S. Damascus Hunter Stag Handle, Rowe Leather Sheath (SOLD)
This is one of Dickie Robinson's fine Master Smith Damascus Hunters. I acquired this knife directly from Dickie at a Jerry Fisk Micro Invitational Show several years ago. Dickie was not the featured Master Smith that year, but he was there as an "attendee". It has been stored outside the sheath, in a climate controlled environment, and kept coated in oil. So, I consider this new from the maker. HOWEVER, as you know, Dickie sadly passed away in September of 2014. His knives are becoming increasingly scarce, as collectors are reluctant to part with them. Dickie consistently produced quality work, even dating back to his days as a Journeyman Smith. He has been, and will continue to be missed at the Blade Show and Hammer-Ins.
I do not recall what steels Dickie used to forge the feather pattern Damascus blade. It is a very thick blade, measuring 0.240" at the ricasso. The single finger guard has some very tasteful engraving on both sides, that I believe was done by Master Smith Steve Dunn. The handle is made from two (2) beautifully matched Stag scales of mortise construction, and secured with stainless pins. Dickie had Kenny Rowe of Rowe's Leather make the pouch sheath. A real nice touch to complement the knife. This is an outstanding example of Dickie's extraordinary work, may he rest in peace.
