Every Hemperley Hunting Knife is an individually hand crafted work of art. No two knives are exactly alike. Most models are constructed of 440c stainless steel with exotic handle materials. Each knife is hand polished to a brilliant brushed metal or stunning mirrored finish, then honed to a razor edge. The overall look, weight, and balance of these knives reveals their rugged construction and attention to detail. Only when Glenn is satisfied with a knife does he etch his name in the blade. This is his seal of approval and your lifetime guarantee against defects in materials and craftmanship. Knives of this caliber are designed for functionality, but the beauty of each knife is destined to become a family heirloom passed down from generation to generation.
