Description: This masterpiece by Raymond Richard has an ageless sense of grace that is rarely found in knives. The massive blade (measuring 11 1/2 inches!) was forged to shape from 1084 carbon steel. The hand satin finished blade has a clear differential heat treatment line, assuring that the spine is soft and resilient, whereas the edge is hard and will stay sharp. The wrought iron for the fittings were forged from an 1850s era wagon wheel. The guard, fittings, and blade have all been antiqued for an heirloom appearance. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
