This general purpose was forged from high carbon W2 steel laminated between two pieces of historic wrought iron recycled from an old GWR cart axle and has a handle made from welsh walnut.
I have put a starter patina on this blade because it looks cool and will also protect it to some degree from tarnishing during carriage, but it will not stay like that!
This knife combines a high degree of functionality, combined with heaps of character. Due to the natural, untreated nature of both high carbon steel, wrought iron and the handle material, this knife will patinate and change over time. Please see the care and guarantee section of my website before purchase.
The specifications are as follows, the distal taper and balance point can be seen in the last two photos;
Blade length; ca. 167mm

Handle length, including bolster; ca. 135mm
