This is a blade of Leaf spring steel (high carbon) with a convex, single-bevel edge. I forged the blade to shape and burned the handle to the Tang, which fits perfectly and is held in by a single brass pin. The ergonomic, hand shaped handle is made of Walnut with a subtle curl, leather and Ironwood burl. A reliable blade for the avid outdoorsman. Dimensions as shown, blade about 1/4" thick at the spine. Custom cowhide leather sheath made upon order, as I spend most time forging and wait for the order to make the sheaths.
