Description: The sturdy ATS-34 stainless steel blade is fileworked in the vine pattern and has a distal tapered tang and blade. A deep cryogenic quench makes the blade have a particularly aggressive edge that will hold its sharpness. The blade has been tempered to Hrc 61-62 for very long edge holding.
African merino sheep horn scales provide a sure, comfortable grip. Sheep horn is unusual in that rather than becoming slippery when wet, it gets grippy -- a perfect handle for a working knife. Polished sheep horn spacers add to the knife's draw. Red fiber spacers allow the knife to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
