5 and 5/8 inch blade hand forged from a scrap 52100 high carbon steel roller bearing. Heat treated to 62 rockwell hardness for excellent edge retention. Primary bevels are flat ground and polished thin with a dappled forced patina. The secondary bevel is sharpened and mirror polished at 18 degrees and is extremely sharp.
4 and 3/4 inch handle is hand carved from figured maple with spalting action. The wood is saturated with a hardened resin to increase durability, longevity, and repel moisture.
