Description: This one of a kind boot knife is features very accomplished stipple work on the hand cast fittings. The traditional Japanese clay temper line, called a hamon, shows a differential heat treat, creating an edge that is especially hard and a spine that is softer; so the knife will be sturdy and keep its edge especially well. This blade has especially elegant grind lines on the spine.
