This is a blade from Laurin Metalli, a Scandinavian bladesmith. High carbon steel with 2 bevels. The handle is traditional stacked style, made of Cherry, Walnut and Birch. The butt is made of a South African quarter-rand. The sheath is custom-fit stacked wood matching the handle, with a leather loop for a belt riveted on with 6 brass rivets. The fit is VERY tight so this knife is secure in the sheath. A good, comfortable fit in the hand for large or small hands. Great for Bushcraft or the outdoorsman.
