    Handforged and Handcrafted! 

    Hiking and hunting seasons are fast approaching, this knife will be there to handle all the tasks at hand. The blade is hand forged from 80CRV2 steel, with a 5  1/2" cutting edge. The cutting edge is convex and will require minimal effort to maintain the edge while out in the field. I left the forge marks on the flats and placed an unsharpened swedge, then finished off the blade with a hand rubbed satin finish. The tang has been tapered to reduce weight and improve ergonomics of the handle. Completing the package are a gorgeous set of dyed and stabilized maple burl scales, and nickel silver hardware.

    5 1/2" cutting edge, with an overall length of 10 1/2

    This set is completed with a custom veg tan leather sheath made from Wickett and Craig leather. Dyed using Bison Brown with a Rough-out overlay on the top.
