This compact knife is as classy as they come. The three inch blade is made from 1095 tool steel, ground to a mirror polish and stropped to a scary sharp convex edge. The blade is stout for a knife of its size and has tremendous strength. The handles are made from ebony wood salvaged from a table. Bolts and lanyard tube are brass while white fiber liners accentuate the extensive vine filework on the tang. Includes a brown leather clip style sheath. A beautiful and well made knife.
