Holman Damascus Hunter
Known as the “Blind Traveller", James Holman was a British adventurer, explorer, and writer. Completely blind and suffering from debilitating pain and limited mobility, he launched a series of solo journeys that were unprecedented in scope and ability. In 1866, the journalist William Jerdan wrote that "From Marco Polo to Mungo Park, no three of the most famous travelers, grouped together, would exceed the extent and variety of countries traversed by our blind countryman." In 1832, Holman became the first blind person to circumnavigate the globe. He continued travelling, and by October 1846 had visited every inhabited continent.
Few of us can imagine what it is like to be blind, let alone traveling the world as a blind person. The style of this handmade Damascus steel Holman Damascus Knife is suited to an adventurer and traveler. Built of 256 folded layers on hardened Damascus steel and with a dark Micarta handle the knife feels amazing to hold and has the heft you would expect from a handcrafted Damascus steel hunting knife.
