Medford Strapper



Medford developed this little work-horse for the North American big-game hunter.  He developed a smaller blade-to-handle proportion knife for great handle purchase and leverage on the blade end of the knife. He used a slightly thicker blade stock than is normal on hunting knives and developed a Helical grind to provide an almost imperceptible transition from the main cutting edge to a shorter grind panel height at the tip. This sophisticated turning grind can only be done by hand and only by the very best of knife craftsmen. The shorter grind panel makes for a thicker and much more buttressed tip strength.
