This is a really nice used knife that was made by Shane. The 5 3/4" blade was hand forged from 1095 spring steel and is backed by a hand forged guard. The octagon handle is made from a beautiful piece of Curly Maple and is accented on both sides by the brass bolster and pommel. The pommel is threaded fast to the tang of the knife which runs the entire length of the handle. The overall length of the knife is 10 1/2". The sheath was also hand stitched by Shane at the time he made the knife. It features a belt loop on the back big enough for a 2 1/2" belt.
