In my continued search to become more familiar with ABS makers and build my collection, I came across a hunter made by Terry Vandeventer that looked like it needed a new home. It was described as never used but it was pretty stained and pitted from lack of care, plus it didn’t have the original sheath. Admittedly, prior to this I hadn’t yet become aware of Terry’s work but after some browsing and research it was quite clear that he’s well respected and regarded in many areas. I decided to give him a call about the knife I was looking at and he was more than friendly, also excited that I was interested in saving a previous knife of his. We talked for a while and he told me to buy the knife and send it down to him, he wanted to give it a good once over. When I got the knife from the previous owner, it wasn’t as bad as the pictures showed but there were still some areas of concern. Well, that obviously wasn’t an issue for Terry because the knife just showed up and it’s like new again, and with a new sheath! The 1084 has a hamon which is very hard to capture in the pictures but the Acacia Burl simply steals the show. If you’d like to share any of your knives from Terry, feel free!
