    This is forged from some of Aldo Bruno's W2. It was clay quenched and has a hamon that can be seen better in real life than in the pictures. It was hand sanded to 1000 grit and then etched. The blade is razor sharp.

    The handle is cocobolo that has been shaped and polished to fit well in the hand. It is held in place with flared tubing and G-flex epoxy.

    The sheath is 7-8oz hand tooled leather from Wickett and Craig. I have a keeper strap on it, and the knife stays securely in the sheath, however, it can be drawn without releasing the keeper strap. I had in my mind that the cut out on the spine area of the sheath would allow for it to cant forward for an easy draw, and it does when the strap is disengaged, however it also draws like it would from a normal pouch sheath.

    Dimensions
    Blade - 8 1/2" tip to handle
    OAL - 14 1/2"

    Price - sold. I will ship internationally for an additional fee.

    I have this posted elsewhere, so the first timestamp saying "I'll take it!" gets it.

    Now that I have purchased two of Matt’s stunning knives, I will definitely take a break from buying, and focus on selling a few of my production knives.:cool:
