CUSTOM HANDMADE KNIFE BY TRAVIS WUERTZ

THIS KNIFE WAS MADE BY TRAVIS WUERTZ WHEN HE WAS A SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL. I PURCHASED IT FROM HIM JUST BEFORE HE DEPARTED FOR HIS FRESHMAN YEAR AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA. TRAVIS STARTED MAKING KNIVES IN HIS EARLY TEENS AND WAS A VERY ACCOMPLISHED KNIFEMAKER BY HIS LATE TEENS. HE STUDIED UNDER ABS MASTERSMITH TIM HANCOCK AND FAVORED FORGED BLADES; THIS KNIFE BLADE WAS FORGED BY TRAVIS AND HE MADE THE HANDLE FROM DYED AND STABLIZED SPALTED MAPLE. THE BLADE IS ABOUT 4.75 INCHES LONG AND THE OVERALL LENGTH OF THE KNIFE IS A BIT OVER 9 INCHES. THE SHEATH WAS HANDMADE BY TRAVIS's FATHER MARVIN WUERTZ AND IS ALSO A WORK OF ART. I HAVE NEVER USED, SHARPENED, OR STORED THE KNIFE IN ITS SHEATH.

TRAVIS GRADUATED WITH A DEGREE IN ENGINEERING AND HAS STARTED HIS OWN COMPANY " WUERTZ MACHINE WORKS" BUILDING SPECLIZED GRINDERS FOR KNIFEMAKERS AND HE WILL BE DISPLAYING HIS WORK AT THIS YEARS BLADE SHOW IN ATLANTA.
