Description: Jon contoured the handle of this knife to give a very good feel in the hand. The cowhide sheath is fitted to the knife to hold it securely, even out in the field. The edge hardened blade gives the blade a similar strength and edge holding to that achieved using the traditional Japanese clay hardening technique. The resulting blade as a softer, supportive spine, and an ultra-hard edge.
