Description: This sturdy carbon tool steel blade is has a spine that is fileworked in the vine pattern and has a tapered tang for especially good balance. A cryogenic heat treatment to the dendritic D2 results in a blade that will have a particularly aggressive edge that won't quit. It was heat treated to Rc 59-60 (very hard), making a knife that will perform amazingly in the field. D2 has nearly enough chromium to be considered a stainless steel, but takes an incredible edge rarely found in stainless steels. Sheep horn scales are nicely offset by the buckeye burl and red fiber spacers. The fit and finish, along with the fileworked spine, make this a knife that will feel at home in a collection but is sturdy enough for use out in the field.
