This Scott Sawby Kingfisher is knife perfection! You cannot feel any seams. Looking at it is a delight!Scott is semi-retired, his Kingfisher style knives rarely come up for sale. The handle material is Presentation Grade Gold Lip Mother of Pearl. The pictures do not do justice to the rainbow of colors that appear on both handles as you turn them in the light.
The blade is made of Stainless ATS-34 Steel and is 2 1/2 inches long. It has a solid lockup and closes via Scott's unique bottom lock release. Total size is 6 1/4 inches. It weighs 2.8 oz. It is a stunning knife and would be a great addition to any knife collection.I was born in North Dakota, but spent most of my youth in Illinois. It was there in 1970 I began making knives as a hobby. It was difficult to get started back then, as there were no books on knifemaking and very few makers around to get advice from. I teamed up with Steve Mullin and we went north to see Bernard Sparks in Dingle, Idaho. Bernie was one of the original custom knifemakers and a founding member of the Guild. He pointed us in the right direction, showed us what a belt sander was, and we went back to Logan to construct one. For the next few years we made knives either full or part time depending on what other employment was available. In 1976 Steve and I bought adjoining pieces of land in North Idaho, built log homes on them and became professional knifemakers. Our first shop was built of logs.
