Description: This is a knife that gets all the more complicated, the more it is examined. Jim's ingenuity shines through. Jim began by forging the 5160 carbon steel blade to shape, then proceeded to grind the blade into many steps offset in two dimensions. The blade has been hardened and triple tempered to a HRC of about 58. Yes the blade has been sharpened. The offsets are carried back through the grips, which are red linen Micarta and secured with nickel silver pins. A truly creative piece!
