RAY KIRK CUSTOM NDN FIXED BLADE KNIFE, ELK, 52100
For your consideration is this Ray Kirk custom NDN Integral fixed blade knife. New unused. I obtained the knife from Ray.
Ray is a master smith that usually marks his knives Raker, as this one is. You may have seen Ray recently on the tv program Forged in Fire. Although he didn’t win he’s right up there with the best.
He calls this knife NDN (Indian)
He forged the integral (all one piece) blade from .531 dia 52100 round bar steel at his shop in Oklahoma. After grinding to shape he heat treated it to a 57 RC
He sometimes leaves the flats of the knife left as forged as he did this one.
Sambar stag handle.
8 1/8″ OAL, 4″ Blade
Includes a leather belt sheath made by Mike Stott of Tahlequah, OK
