This is an exceptional knife created by Tore Fogarrizu with engraving by Simone Fezzardi. The knife is a button lock, pushing the hidden button allows the blade to pop up a half inch or so that it may be grasped and fully opened. The side plates are gold and they are fully engraved with a Pirate scene.....the captain, looking trough his telescope (see the view reflexed in the glass at the end of the telescope) spys a beautiful pirate lass shown on the reverse side of the knife. A playful and beautiful work of art by two Italian Masters.

The Drop Point Hunter has to be the quintessential Bob Loveless knife; most copied pattern there is and the most comfortable in the hand. I have had many Drop Point Hunters but always looking to find a better example to upgrade the collection. I guess there could be a reasonable debate as to the green Micarta vs. stag as the perfect representation of the DP but it is hard to argue against the beauty of stag. I have had a very nice example of a natural stag DP but recently acquired an amber stag piece. I think I may have to keep both.
