Given how well this turned out I decided I would list it afterall.


It is 10" overall, with a 5 1/2" blade. Blade is just under 1" wide and 1/8" thick.
The blade is 1084 steel from Aldo.
The mounting is african mahogany finished with tru-oil and black plastic, with a forged copper habaki.

The knife has some imperfections, such as the poorly cut fullers and a slightly unsightly fitting of the kurikata.

If you would like to own this knife, feel free to make an offer. I will ship USPS within the US.
