This XL Desert Ironwood Fighter flexes an aggressive hand forged half-s copper guard atop a sub-hilt for a remarkable grip both standard or reversed. We hand forged the 13/64" thick 5160 spring steel blade to measure 7 1/4" from tip to guard with a razor sharp hollow grind and a hammermark finish. The guard is soldered in place above black and white fiber, copper and ironwood spacers with a premium ironwood handle that's also pinned with copper. The overall length measures 12" and it comes in a custom sheath in the style of your choosing. Wouldn't want to be on the business end of this one!
