Description: The deep tones of the dark green ray skin on this shobu creates a subtle rich tone with a tactical feel. Impregnating the wrap with resin gives it a very secure grip in the hand. The blade has been clay tempered using a traditional Japanese method which allows the spine to retain the resilience inherent in the steel while allowing the edge to be hardened for superior sharpness. Steve's knives are well tested in the field and are extremely well executed.
