This eye catching, hand forged knife is both stunning and super tough!
Starting out as a thick bar of 80CrV2 to it would forged out to shape. The tang was tapered to reduce weight and improve balance. The spine behind the edge was left a full 1/4' thick for strength. A few small forge marks were left in the ricasso area and near the tip for a little character.
The scales are faceted black liner micarta over thick solid copper liners. The angle of the facet offer a unique look while giving a good grip. Copper corby bolts and lanyard tube help 2 ton epoxy secure the scales for a lifetime fit. The scales were then polished to make the beautiful copper really shine.
The knife is secured in a black kydex belt sheath and has leather strapping so that it can be carried comfortably in a horizontal scout style carry. The knife will also include a universal belt attachment so that it can be carried vertically on either hip.
