Blade: Just over three and a quarter inches of cutting edge for this fellow. The saber grind is complimented with a swedged clip point and famous GEC polished finish. Its long pull groove is perfectly placed for you to pull to a half stop before full deployment. You can also use the front nail nick for more leverage though the operation is quite smooth. Built from hard working 1095 USA high carbon steel. It will need cared for or allowed a natural patina to unique the piece. Sharpens nicely.
Handle: Construction of this beefy piece is reminiscent of a classic glass soda bottle with back spring, brass liners and pins. Carefully rounded and smooth, this one is dressed in Gabon Ebony wood that is sure to please. Polished nickel silver finishes out the construction in style with dual bolsters (twin striped primary) and Keyhole shield.
Each #97 arrives inside its shipping tube, wrapped in wax paper with company info on the front.
1095 High Carbon Tool Steel: Highly popular, simple carbon steel. Used extensively by both production and custom knife makers. Low abrasive wear due to low carbide content but very tough and easy to sharpen. Not corrosion resistant and will rust without proper care.
