Function, stability and aesthetics. The fine hollow ground blade, made of Austrian Böhler N695 steel, is constructed with a robust full tang. To allow fine, controlled cuts, a checker ring is located on the back of the blade as a finger notch. The stainless steel bolsters add a nice balance, and harmonize perfectly with the hand selected stag handle scales and red fiber layer. Includes a high quality brown leather sheath.
