    It's 17. 1/4" overall and weighs 31 oz.
    The blade is 1095 spring steel 12" X 2. 3/16" and 1/4" thick.
    The fittings are 1018 steel WELDED
    to the full tang.

    The handle is 5" long with scales of Curly Maple.

    The sheath is 10 oz. leather with black steel rivets and a
    black steel snap.
    It's cemented at the spacer and hand stitched
    using doubled waxed nylon saddle stitching thread making for an
    extremely rugged, rough use sheath.

    The rough beveled blade is reheated in the forge to glowing red
    and quenched in strained used motor oil. After it's cleaned of slag
    it's brought back up in temp. until it can be struck with a file.
    I leave the file marks showing. I like a handmade knife to look
    handmade.
    This is how I harden / temper my blades. They hold an edge
    extremely well.


    Thanks for looking,
