Sam Stoner Amish Made Slim Hunter/Skinner with Box Elder Wood Handles and Wrought Iron Coppered Damascus Blade  

 A rarity among custom knifemakers in that he is "Old Order Mennonite" ( Swiss German and south German heritage who practice a lifestyle without some elements of modern technology, who dress plain and who have retained the old forms of worship, baptism and communion.).

Sam does not use any electricity or motors in his shop. All of his equipment is connected to pulleys and belts on a overhead drive shaft which is powered by two large horses walking on a treadmill. Instead of forging his blades in a gas furnace he uses a hand crank coal fired forge. (which provides for a more even and adjustable air flow).

Most of us are inconvenienced by a couple of hours of no electricity whereas it is hard to imagine running a complete knife shop without electric! or phone! WOW!

This "Skinner" features a 4 1/2" (4" sharpened edge), Hand Forged Wrought Iron Coppered Damascus Blade with Box Elder Wood Handles. Damascus Blade has Copper content and you can see the orange/gold color in the blade along with the "Hamon" Line=(Temper Line created on the blade by the hardening process). Also features a Copper Finger Guard.

Includes a handmade leather sheath. Blade is marked with the maker's initials SS. Overall length is 8 3/4". The perfect piece for those who want a blade made the traditional true way (coal forged), and are looking for a no nonsense, handmade, razor sharp skinner that is naturally beautiful yet highly functional. Sam is a member of the ABS; (American Bladesmith Society), and his blades are in high demand. Weighs 7.5oz with the sheath.
