The stainless blade on this fillet knife is about 7 1/2″ long and comes with a heavy duty leather sheath. The handle is made of naturaly shed caribou antler, a renewable product found in areas throughout Alaska where large heards of caribou have been roaming for thousands of years. This is a beautiful and very durable material. It is designed and made here in Anchorage by Alaskan knife maker, Bob Merry.
Bob and his family have been carving and making knives in Alaska for over 30 years. Each year he spends a month or more in the Arctic wilderness collecting naturally shed antler for his knife handles and carvings. He gets mammoth bone from miners, and artifacts and other materials from hunters that find them while in the back country.
Because this knife is made of natural material, the grain and color will vary.
