This is a piece that I wish I had myself. I've put together a classic blade shape with my own twist, using one of my favorite handle materials - spalted beech (stabilized) that was collected locally from Beech Mountain, the highest incorporated town east of the Mississippi river. The construction is brute de forge integral using W-1 tool steel, with the shoulders of the integral bolster left as forged. A 400 grit satin finish sits on the blade to compliment the rough, raw texture of the ricasso. The handle features ergonomically sculpted facets. This piece comes with a right handed belt carry leather sheath. A legacy in your hand. Free shipping to the USA.
