The handle is stabilized spalted sycamore and the pins are nickel silver. The blade is 6 in long, has almost full flat grind, and is sharp on both top and bottom edge. the handle is 5 in long and very ergonomic. There is a distal taper each direction going from 1/4 I’m in the middle of the knife to less than 1/8 making it light and balanced. comes razor sharp and with sheath. The sheath has yet to be made because you get to pic the color of the leather. $260 shipping included to us. Extra if not to US.
