Hand forged, 3 1/4" blade of O1 high carbon, tungsten alloy steel heat treated to about 60 Rockwell hardness. Flat ground primary bevel, with a convex cutting edge makes for very sharp edge that will hold up well and be relatively easy to sharpen. Distal taper makes for a very thin tip for delicate jobs.
4 3/8" hand forged mild steel handle.
Inspired by the traditional Japanese work knife, the Higonokami, and the French Douk Douk knives.
