This 16 1/2 inch knife features a 11 1/4 inch 5160 steel blade, desert ironwood grips with beautiful rivets and a simple functional style. This comes in a spectacular sheath made by Chris Kravitt of Tree Stump Leather. This knife was shown in Knives Illustrated 12-11 on page 19 and in Blade Magazine 1-12 on page 52. This knife does show some light oxidation stains on both sides from poor storage, perhaps a little polishing would help, but I'm not qualified. This knife originally sold for $1200, I think the staining reduces the value a little, so we are asking $995 with free shipping. A bargain knife made by a master. Free shipping.
