Gary Griffin is an Oregon custom knife maker. He is a master smith and forges his blades.
He forged this custom knife he calls “SHF” a nice size fixed blade all purpose style knife. Obtained from Gary. I’m selling as used. The knife originally had a paracord wrapped handle. Some how It managed to get some kind of grease or oil on it so removed and had a knife maker add colorful micarta handle scales and he did a beautiful job.
Reddish color micarta handle scales that are similar to the rag micarta that used to be made. The scales are held on with 3 stainless pins. Full tang.
The butt of Gary’s knife can be used as a wrench or crusher. I added a paracord lanyard.
Forged awesome blade made from 5160 carbon steel. Gary’s GMK (Griffin Made Knives) logo is stamped on one side of blade, SHF on the other side.
There are aggressive serrations on top edge of blade. Very sharp. The nose of the knife is also sharp and the original edge is extremely sharp.
11″ OAL, 5 1/2″ Blade, 5″ Cutting Edge, 3/16″ Thick, 1 5/8″ Wide blade
I also had a heavy duty brown leather belt sheath custom made for the knife
