Lonesome Tree Designs Custom Leather & Knives
The new 2014 Hog Father
New design and new steel. I went with a new design using the handle like the original Hog Father and the over sized guard/bolster like the Hog Father Jr. and used and slant design on the the blade with the slant being a false edge for better penetration. I went with D2 Steel this time and really like it. If you don't know how to properly sharpen a knife 440C stainless steel won't hold its edge. If you do know how to sharpen a knife well, the 440C will hold its edge. So, I went with D2 steel that easier to sharpen and has a great edge. It doesn't polish as nicely as stainless but who needs pretty for a hog knife.
The length of the knife is between the Original and Jr.
