Blade: The straight edge and tapered point define the sturdy Wharncliffe profile popular with wood carvers and general users alike. The blade has a subtle full hollow grind with a straight edge for powerful slicing performance from heel to tip. The W2 tool steel blade tapers to a fine point for piercing and detail work with spine jimiping, generous choil and subtle index guard providing security and control. A Japanese inspired Hamon provides visual appeal for users and collectors alike.

Handle: Stainless pins solidly secure the comfortably contoured, polished dyed cow bone handles to the full tang. Offering a clean, handsome look with visual appeal for collectors, the handles are durable and well-designed for serious use and security in the grip.

No sheath

W2 Tool Steel: W2 is a water hardening non-stainless tool steel especially popular with custom makers as it allows for a striking hamon blade pattern from tempering. Maximum working hardness is 63-65 HRC for good edge holding and cutting performance with a thin edge.
