View Full Version : Don Hanson Sleek Fighter w/Blue Ivory
06-11-2010, 03:28 AM
Here's a Don Hanson Fighter I was fortunate to pick up at Blade Show.
The Mammoth Ivory is pretty ugly, but think I can grow to like it. ;)
But seriously this piece is incredibly light weight and lighting fast in hand and it has the sharpest top clip (full length) I have encountered on a knife. If ever being in the unfortunately position of having to defend yourself with a knife you could do much worst than this baby. :thumbup:
BL ~ 8 1/2" Hanson Crazy-Lazy-Ladder pattern damascus, w/like damascus fittings
OAL ~ 13 1/2"
Tapered frame handle construction
Premium BLUE Mammoth Ivory Scales
18K Solid Gold Pin
Thank you in advance for your interest

This is a really cool knife - as much of a pleasure to handle as it is to look at. Like we discussed at the show, I think Don is on to something with that full length, sharpened top clip. It works so well with his signature style straight blades. The ivory handle is amazing. :eek:

Wow! Kevin, Don, that knife is just beautiful. That ivory just blows you away.

Thank you guys for the kind words.
I know Don will appreciate them too. He's away from the internet for a few days.
Coop really did an exceptional job in capturing the beauty and detail of the ivory and damascus.

Full sharp clip, tapered handle frame construction, Hanson damascus, over-the-top ivory, great flow, great feel. I think you have a winner, Kevin!

Just a beautiful knife in every respect.

In my humble opinion, this is one of the most beautiful knives I have seen. Don Hanson's work is always superb, but this, well, this is beauty, simplicity and elegance - all in one gorgeous knife.

Another spectacular knife as would be expected from Don. The damascus as usual is super and the ivory, what can i say. Pretty good representation of the quality of ivory Don is known for as is the whole nice.
Great get Kevin.
