This knife was hand forged from 1084 steel. It has a rough brut de forge finish with a hand satin finish on the bevels. The blade was thermal cycled 3 times to produce a fine grain then hardened and tempered to 60-61 hrc. The blade is extremely sharp and meant to be a very effective slicing knife, with a slight recurve and upswept blade it has a distinct Persian look with a practical paracord wrap on the handle. The blade is 5” long and the hand is 4”. Available for $100 via PayPal G&S, shipping is included within the United States, international shipping adds $10 to the price.
