This Trout & Bird is a collaboration between both James Behring and Mudbone Jones, and anyone that knows the names will know to bury this one deep in the safe! In this build, James saw to forging the blade as well as heat treating and grinding in addition to soldering the copper guard in place. From there it was sent from Montana to Ohio where Mudbone saw to the handle stack of black and maroon fiber, brass, copper, black micarta and blaze g10 spacers paired up with a gorgeous selection of sambar stag. In true Mud fashion is a peened copper arrowhead on the butt that matches up with another on the custom sheath. The blade measures 4" from tip to guard with a razor sharp hollow grind, hammermarks and the "Behring x Mudbone" special stamp. Overall it measures 8 3/4" and the sheath is a Mudbone classic with with a double trout carving and latigo tied border- a cherry on top offered by Mud's wife, Teresa. It takes a village!
