Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Blade was forged from 1095 bar. It is differential heat treated, and etched in lemon acid to reveal nice hamon. I tried to achieve aged look of the blade. Bevels are hand polished with 2500 grit and flats are left "brute de forge". Guard is forged and polished with visible hammer marks, but feels smooth in the hand. Nice two tone piece of textolite (vintage phenolic micarta) is used for the handle. Red G10 is used for liners, and carbon fiber for pins. Details: Overall length - 12,75" Blade length - 7,2" Blade width - 1,9" Thickness at the back of the spine - 9/64" Tang is tapered to 3/64" Knife itself weights 9,5 oz, and with sheath is 14,2 oz Handmade 4mm thick (0,16") vegetable leather sheath, made for right hand vertical carry.
