Description: This beautiful knife has the sleek look of a fighter. The blade and tang are distal tapered, giving a really good balance and feel. Extensive filework runs from the butt to half way down the blade which has been edge hardened, double tempered, and torch annealed along the spine for excellent edge holding ability and strength. Finally, it has been given a hand rubbed satin finish. The long tapered point combined with a fair amount of belly makes this design very functional as a hunting knife for larger game. It features a German silver guard to provide a barrier between the blade and the user's fingers. The grips are made of stabilized spalted maple burl. The grips are accented with black liner material and are held in place with German silver pins.
