The Diamondback

There's only one viper more feared in southeastern NC than a cottonmouth, and that's the eastern diamondback rattler. For his sixth potential JS presentation piece, Scott lengthened and modified his popular Cottonmouth design to make a monster recurve that makes your heart flutter when you get too close. This GHF Diamondback was forged from W2, given a wild hamon, and handled with dyed curly maple. She's a thrill to hold, but be careful - this knife definitely bites.

The Diamondback

Finish: Hand-rubbed with clay hamon
Handle: Dyed curly maple
