Aaron Frederick Custom 3PS Drop Point Fixed 4.05" Sandvik 12C27 Blade, Snakewood Handles with Damascus Bolsters, Leather Sheath
AF3PSDPFB2: Custom 3PS Drop Point Fixed Blade
Aaron Frederick Custom Knives
This fixed blade came along from Aaron trying to make a good solid knife to carry that was tough enough to stand up to everyday life, but also dress up like a 3-piece suit businessman. The Drop Point fixed blade is a solidly built, svelte piece designed for hunters yet with the looks of a safe queen. Aaron is well known for having top-quality fit and finish but the preciseness behind this knife is what impresses us. The 4.05" drop point blade is made from Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel with a hand rubbed satin finish. Its slender shape makes it great for the fine detail work necessary for field dressing medium to large size game. The thin handle is made from snakewood with heat anodized Frederick Damascus bolsters. You get a comfortable, solid grip on this bad boy and a leather drop sheath that will fit on any 2.25" belt. Everything on the knife is done by the hands of Aaron himself in Kentucky and the knife is entirely put together with tiny Torx screws. If you're looking for a compact custom hunting knife from a tactical designer, look no further than the 3PS Small Skinner from Aaron Frederick.
