Description: Doug Noren was welcomed as Mastersmith in 2004. His work is exceptional, drawing heavily on the work of the late William Scagel. More so than nearly any other maker, William Scagel's knives have captured the imagination of American knife collectors, with the unique shape and appearance.
This bird and trout is very true to Scagel's design -- from the carbon steel upswept blade to the crown stag handle with stacked spacers. Doug chose to follow the color themes used by Scagel, combining leather with bronze, nickel silver, and red and black fiber spacers. Copper spacers add warmth to the color scheme. The resulting handle is both dramatic and extremely comfortable. The front of the bronze guard has been beveled and fits perfectly to the 1084 blade. The blade has been meticulously hand satin finished.
The knife is accompanied by a hand tooled leather sheath. The fit and finish throughout is exceptional.
