ME978: 978 Hunting Knife
Maserin
 
Maserin collaborated with the Facebook group "Wild Boars Our Passion" to create a specialized boar hunting knife. The aim was the realization of the best knives for hunters of wild boars combining high quality materials with the excellence of the craftsmanship, aesthetics, easy usage and total security. The result is a 7.5" drop point blade forged from the high carbon 440C stainless steel. Drop point blades have large bellies which specialize in chopping maneuvers and slicing. The handles are made from the lightweight and very durable G10, which is made of fiberglass and resins pressed at very high pressure. The logo of "Wild Boars Our Passion" is engraved on the blade. Included with the knife is a leather sheath and production is 100% made in Italy.

Sorprendentemente Impressionante (Surprisingly Impressive!)
I had my Blackjack Halo 14 out on my desk when this Boar Hunter arrived. Although, both knives have 7.5” blades, when I took the Maserin Boar Hunter from its box, and laid it next to the Halo 14, the Blackjack looked like a mere child’s toy next to it. The massive compound saber ground, drop point blade on the Boar Hunter measures 1.75” in depth, and has a sharp 20 degree edge applied. The 440C and G10 scales make this a great wilderness knife. >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Although, a heavy knife at 1.5 lbs., the Boar Hunter is perfectly balanced, right on the index finger, making it seem much lighter. The overturned canoe grip is perhaps, my favorite handle style for comfort and security of grip. But, when you grab onto this Boar Hunter grip you know you are holding on to a power tool; hand-filling and comfortable, but definitely designed to transfer power from the hand/arm/torso, to the blade. Truly, impressive. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Equally impressive is the fit and finish, throughout. Nice jimping on the handle spine and belly. Not as impressive, is the sheath. No liner, or rivets, but well made. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> I know there are hunters out there who hunt hogs with knives, and before I received the knife, I didn’t believe that was what this Boar Hunter 7.5” Fixed Blade was about. I thought this knife was meant for field dressing/butchering, “grande cinghiali,” or at least the broader tasks; not the detailed work, such as, caping, boning, etc. After handling it, I am not so, sure. It’s hard to know what Maserin, and, Cinghiali Che Passione (Wild Boars What a Passion) had in mind when they designed this knife. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> I’d love to be able to travel back in time, and take this Boar Hunter Fixed blade to a 19th Century rendezvous of mountain men, trappers, voyageurs, scouts, frontiersmen, Native Americans, and soldiers. I think, after they got done rolling around on the ground laughing over the orange handle, they would come to appreciate and deeply covet this knife. This is just the sort of knife they mean, when they refer to their, “butcher knife.” I believe if those men had a knowledge of modern materials and methods, they would design a knife very similar to this knife, designed by, Cinghiali Che Passione. You could paddle away from the rendezvous with a canoe full of beaver pelts in trade for this knife. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> This is not your classic large camp knife. They usually have 25-30 degree edge (convex edged, sometimes) to facilitate chopping without chipping/rolling the edge, and perhaps, softer steel. With a 20 degree edge, this is more like the mountain man’s/American frontiersman’s, so called, “butcher knife;” a knife he used not only to provide sustenance, but also for protection, woodcraft, dispatching wounded animals, and more. With the over-built grip, and the strong point, you can rest assured that this knife is meant for powerful thrust, and deep penetration. This is what I call a, wilderness knife. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> I had this on my wishlist for almost a year, and was finally pushed into buying it by the 5 star reviews from purchasers of this knife, and the Masserin, Boar Hunter Bowies (check them out yourself). This is not only an excellent knife, but it is also an incredible value. This is comparable to many knives costing double, triple, and more. Sorry, but it looks like I took the last one, “In Stock.” But, go ahead and purchase this knife. It’s worth a two month wait. I imagine this comes from Italy, via Spain, where they load them onto the Nina, Pinta, or Santa Maria for the voyage to the New World, and hence, the delay.

Awesome - A brilliant camp/survival knife
Very nicely finished and super sharp out of the box. I don't think much of the sheath but have re-housed it in a spec-ops large sheath and that works really well. This is a beast of a knife that chops and slices extremely well, and whilst it will certainly deal to animals, it's a bit big to be used as a general purpose hunter. Superb all round camp & survival knife. There will be those that dislike the shiny steel blade and bright orange handle, but it doesn't detract from its performance, and I find it perfect for my needs.
