Description: Bruce Bingenheimer makes an exceptional knife. The blade was forged to shape from 5160 carbon steel. A differential heat treatment assures a strong blade, with a soft, supportive spine and a keen, long lasting edge. A triple temper and triple quench assures the best edge holding. The blade is distal tapered for optimal balance. The nickel silver guard is fluted and hand satin finished. The mesquite burl handle was stabilized so as to hold up well to outdoor use. Accompanied by hand stitched, carved and textured leather sheath. Exceptional work throughout!
