This pocket knife is made from the finest materials. The blade is 440C Stainless Steel honed down to 880 grit to give it a razor sharp edge. The scales (handle) of this knife is made from Birdseye Maple. We sand and seal the wood to a showroom finish. The full open length is 7 1/2" and the blade is 3". This is a great piece to carry around (I do) or to put on display.
