    This knife was a collaborative effort with my 17yo cousin, who picked the pattern and assisted in profiling and heat-treating over the holidays for his 18th birthday present. 5.125" harpoon blade, as-quenched, fully hardened halfway down the tang, then differentially tempered for a super-tough blade, with an edge at ~60HRc. Bolster is brass from the E/V Nautilus's original rudder bearing assembly (replaced in 2013).
