The blade is 8.5 inches long with a razor sharp edge. It is 1/8" thick and 2" wide.
Immediately after forging the blade it was normalized to refine the grain structure for a very tough steel. Then the blade was edge hardened after which it was tempered. These processes balances both toughness and edge-holding ability and created a durable blade with a razor sharp edge. The guard and pommel was made by hand from brass.The handle is made from ancient bog oak from Europe with brass inlay. It fits in the hand nicely. The sheath is made of high quality thick vegetable tanned leather and was made for horizontal carry along the lower back. The knife will not slide out, its tight in the sheath. The sheath was form fitted to the blade. I take pride in making my knives and each one is handcrafted taking numerous hours to complete.
