The beefy blade was forged from high carbon ball bearing steel (52100), laminated with a historic wrought iron from an old horseshoe (you can see the nails on the mark side!), and shims of pure nickel.
The handle is made of 5000 year old Anglian bog oak.
The blade is not stainless and must be cared for as outlined in the "care and guarantee" page on this website. It has a forced patina which offers initial protection from oxidation, but will change in use. The bog oak is similarly a natural material and requires basic maintenance as outlined in the "care and guarantee" page on this website.
The basic dimensions are as follows:
Blade length: ca. 180mm
Heel height : ca. 51mm
Handle length: ca. 130mm
Balance point and taper as pictured.
