In keeping with the tradition of unique and highly collectible SHOT Show auction knives, the 2013 SHOT Show knife is a "1 of 1" Canal Street Cutlery High Country Skinner in a specially engraved "Heritage Edition" and is currently being auctioned exclusively on www.GunBroker.com
This highly collectible knife is designed by Oleh Stecyk in collaboration with Canal Street Cutlery. The 8 5/8" skinner features a handle of stabilized presentation grade Musk Ox. The exquisite blade is crafted of D2 Blade steel and is mirror polished, double taper flat grind and belt edge with razor buff.
The knife features hand engraving on both guards done by Heidi Roos of Baron Technology's Custom Studio and laser engraved "2013 SHOT Show-Heritage Edition" on left side of blade and the laser-engraved signature of Canal Street Cutlery President, Wally Gardiner, on right side. The package also features a handsome, wet-formed full grain leather sheath.
The knife and special letter of authenticity from Mr. Gardiner will be displayed at the SHOT Show in a unique custom-designed display featuring an inscribed marble base that is a work of art in itself. The display will be included in the auction package to enhance the knife's display in the home or office of the high bidder.
