Hand forged at my home in the small South Texas town of Dilley. This knife was made out of a old farriers rasp. The Handel is a wood known as "Soap Brush" and is only found in this area. Knife is 10 1/2" from tip to tip, blade is 6". The lanyard hole is a 223 bullet casing. This knife was made to cut, chop and look cool! It's a great knife that will keep its edge and last for generations to come!
