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 and ferrule are each fluted and satin finished. A copper spacer is set in front of the guard. Sambar stag of this quality has become increasingly hard to come by. The nickel silver end cap is carved to match the stag's texture. Accompanied by hand stitched, carved and textured leather sheath. Exceptional work throughout!
