Other Features: We have just recently received this beautiful shadow pattern sheepsfoot trapper from Japan’s Own Takeshi Masusaki. What a beautiful piece it is. This exquisite example of a single blade trapper style knife has terrific snakewood scales, a beautiful acorn shield in 416 stainless steel, and a razor sharp ATS-34 blade. This piece also features flush stainless pins as well as wonderful walk and talk.. And I will tell you that the beauty of this wonderful piece is not just skin deep. The finish work on this knife is absolutely exquisite as is the fit and perfect blade center. The blade tension has just the right feel, and the snakewood scales fit this piece just right as well. We are very fortunate to have met this maker and are pleased to be carrying his work. I promise you that once you see this lovely knife in person, you will be delighted. We are sure to be seeing more lovely knives from this maker in the foreseeable future as well.
