Sub-Hilt Fighter

Price $10,795.00


This is a large, powerful sub-hilt fighter from the late W.W. Cronk. The spine at the forward double hilt is 3/8 inch thick, a trademark of Mr. Cronk. The top edge is sharpened approximately 4 inches back from the tip. The gray matte coating on the blade provides a non-reflective surface. Mr. Cronk used 440C, D-2 and 154CM steels during his career and the specific steel for this blade is unknown. The hilt, sub-hilt and buttcap are non-magnetic, leading us to believe these areas are of brushed titanium. The handle grip is firm due to the ribbed rubberized o-rings used. The buttcap has a thong hole. The blade depth is 1 3/4 inches. An extremely rare and remarkable knife. Note: The stitching on the sheath is a waxed thread which is coming loose in one area - however, we have elected not to attempt to repair as the future owner may wish to make and document his own restorations.

Bill Cronk made knives from 1963 until his death in 1983, and is considered to be one of the pioneers of custom knifemaking. His early knives were hunter, skinner, Bowie, fighter and similar patterns. Later in his career he expanded his creations to include knives of more unusual and diverse designs.
