Comments: Those of you who are familiar with the Ricardo Velarde story already know that he had two of the finest knife making mentors on the planet. Steve Johnson was Ricardo's early mentor, followed by a year in Dietmar Kressler's shop learning to make flawless integrals. Ricardo has done both of his mentors proud with this classic integral drop-point hunter.
The bolster features Ricardo's trade-mark satin and high polish banding, and the grips are made from nicely matched Sambar Stag which is contoured in a pleasing shape to fit the hand. A modestly priced piece stunner by one of today's top integral masters.
