This is some of Aldo's W2, clay coated and quenched for a nice hamon. The blade is polished to 1500 grit and etched to bring out the hamon. The handle is black canvas micarta with ivory paper micarta. It is sculpted and polished and fits the hand very well The whole thing is held in place with G-flex epoxy and pins. The sheath is 8-9oz leather from Wickett and Craig. The knife slips in nicely and holds securely. Dimensions Blade - 3 7/8" tip to handle OAL - 8 1/2" Price - $230 shipped to US. I prefer paypal, but will accept check or money order. The first to post here "I'll take it" gets it.
