    Another big one :)...
    Forged to shape from 5160 steel bar.
    Powerful tool with great balance and nice distal taper.
    I'm sure it will be great tool for any outdoors activity, kitchen/butcher work.
    It's light and feels great in hand.
    Flats are left raw, soaked in vinegar and wire brushed after forging.
    After heat treatment, flats are brushed with scotch brite.
    Bevels are brushed with scotch brite.
