This is a small sheath knife with a high/low carbon steel blade with a random pattern. The etch is a fairly light one and the blade polished, so the layers are not real prominent. The mountings on both the knife and sheath are brass and the handle is Padauk wood. The sheath is made from modeler's aircraft birch laminate and is strong. The sheath is also covered in dark red velvet. The blade measures 4 1/4 inches by 7/8 inch wide. The knife is 8 inches long.
