This one of a kind knife was hand forged from a solid block of 1084 carbon steel. The handle is jigged water buffalo horn which adds a great feel and grip to the knife. It's held together with 2 brass pins and industrial strength epoxy. I also hand filed a design on the handle for a more custom look. Completely hand made and will last a lifetime if properly taken care of. Comes with a handmade sheath hand tooled with a basket weave.
