The knife is just under 8" long overall, with a razor-sharp, 4" long by 1 3/16" wide blade. It has been carefully heat-treated for a keen, durable edge, and features an attractive, wavy temper line, or "hamon", created by applying clay to the back of the blade prior to hardening.
Sold sharp and ready to use. Shipping is included in the purchase price...knife will be shipped by US Postal Service, first class with delivery confirmation. Thanks for looking!
