Dave personally field tests all of his knife designs placing emphasis on balance, form and function. "Cut-n-Shoot" This is a collector series with special attention given to every detail.
These knives have proven themselves in the woods and work places of Montana, under extreme conditions. Great effort is taken to make sure that each piece is distinct.
Wood, Micarta and Montana Elkhorn are used for most handles.
A powder horn,powder measure, ramrod,and the tools to work on the "Cut-n-Shoot" are included in each box. The design for series number 02 is done and work has started on it.
If you have any questions on the "Cut-n-Shoot" series please contact me.
