Roe Hostile Gentleman

Roe Knives Hostile Intent - Burl (Custom)

True Intent

Mark Roe's knife making journey is as interesting as his character. Mark first met Scott Sawby (yes, the legendary Scott Sawby) and Steve Mullin (Scott's former knifemaking partner) in 2002 and started learning to make fixed blade knives.

Following that, Mark took over the reins as a full-time maker crafting Steve's Pack River Knife designs and some of his own designs. Experiencing burn-out (due to the immense backlog and popularity), Mark returned to his career as a Metrologist. But now he is back to making his own knives full-time (and the entire knife community is all the better for it).

The Roe Hostile Intent exhibits all of Mark's immense expertise, experience and elegance when it comes to shaping sharpened steel. Designed, by the one and only Jared Van Otterloo, as a compact gentleman's blade with a snappy bite, the Hostile Intent features an S30V blade that cuts through any and all with ease.

The handles too exceed all expectations with a burl wood scale that was made from noneother than a pool cue that was double-dyed and stablilized. The bolsters are made from lightening strike carbon fiber, and it is finished off with a custom black-gloss cerakoted pivot colar. 

As one of the most highly sought after modern knife makers (and torchbearer of Scott Sawby's legacy), Mark's blades are staggeringly popular and his books are almost always closed (or it comes with a long waiting list). So, we're proud and lucky to have one of these extremely rare and dapper Hostile Gentleman in stock. Make your move now because these will definitely go fast.
