Toby Hill Two-Blade Stag Saddlehorn Trapper, Bruce Barnett "River Of Fire" Damascus Blades
Toby Hill has now been making knives for more than 5 years. His knives do not reflect the relatively short time he has been at it. They have become increasingly more refined, with a higher level of attention to detail and functionality. They are the work of a much more seasoned slip-joint and lock-back knifemaker. No wonder, Toby learned to make knives from none other than Bill Ruple, a master at making traditional patterned folders. Toby's work is clean, and he has a great eye. Toby has definitely become an accomplished knifemaker in his own right. This knife is Brand New and direct from Toby's shop in Pleasanton, TX.
This Toby Hill Saddlehorn Trapper features a Clip Point blade and a Spey blade, both done with Bruce Barnett's "River Of Fire" Damascus. The handle scales are two (2) gorgeous and well-matched amber stag scales with an inlaid 416 stainless steel Bombshell shield on the presentation side. The fluted bolster is 416 stainless steel, as are the pins, and liners. Toby has done some very tasteful, fine file-work on the outer liners, with complimenting Vine and Thorns file-work on the backspring. Both blades have half-stops, lock up tight with no play, and each blade is seated centered between their respective liners. Nice comfortable nicks, with smooth, even pulls. This is a stunning knife! One of Toby's best. Comes in a Hill Knives padded, zippered case.
