Made from 1080 high carbon steel. The finished knives are hardend and tempered to produce a hard, durable edge with slightly softer tang and spine for increased toughness.
I leave all my knives with a natural forged finish. They are ground and polished to produce a keen edge but no more. Remember sharp does the work, not shine!
The handle is hand twisted para cord with plenty of cord to spare.
The blade is approx. 6 inches in length however this will vary from knife to knife. I make them all one at a time and one of a kind. My knives are a big hit at the rendezvous. They are not a modern "high tech" knife. Nothing fancy, just a basic blade much the same as you would have found at the trading post 150 years ago.
Buy this knife or ask me to make you a special knife. One that meets a particular style that you like, or a little adjustment here or there. I'm happy to meet my customers' needs! Everyone is different and has different likes and dislikes. I make pieces custom to your needs
