It has bee triple quenched and triple tempered. This steel has become well known through makers such as Ed Fowler and Bill Burke and results in some of the highest performance knives found anywhere.
The tang is hidden and continuous through the handle and is drilled and tapped to the fileworked stainless steel pommel. This construction is extremely strong. The handle material is a beautiful piece of stabilized box elder burl. The sheath is all hand sewn and was wet fitted to the knife to give it a snug fit. Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
