This knife was forged from 5160 spring steel. The knife features a blade that was heat cycled 3 times and tempered for strength and durability. The handles are contoured cocobolo wood with thick red acrylic liners, and brass pins. The blade length is 4.5" with a shaving sharp edge. The overall length of the knife is 8.75", and with a 4.25" handle this would make it great for hunting and camping. It is also set up for fire steel scraping because of it 90° spine. The sheath is kydex, with a belt loop made of leather, held on with copper rivets. I have tested this knife making feather sticks and a small fire. Thanks for looking.
