W2 steel with hamon
10.5" OAL
Includes leather sheath and lanyard

W2 tool steel is not stainless. It should be kept clean and oiled.

NOTE: forge marks and hamon pattern on the blade will be unique from knife to knife.
Wood grain/Horn materials will vary from piece to piece and will not look exactly like what's pictured.

What's a hamon?
Its a differential heat-treatment on the blade. The blade edge is hardened and the spine is left un-hardened. Resulting in a tougher spine that can take a beating and hard edge that will retain sharpness.

Not all blade steels are capable of achieving this.

The patterning/lines on the blade are visual manifestation of this type of heat-treatment and is brought out by a series of acid etches and lots of hand sanding/rubbing. This can be time-consuming, but the results are beautiful.
