This outstanding new Trout & Bird might just be my favorite from the current batch- the grains in the wood are simply outstanding. The blade is hand forged from 3/16" thick high carbon 01 tool steel and it measures 4 3/4" from tip to guard with a razor sharp convex grind. The brass guard is soldered in place above black, maroon, brass and fossil walrus ivory spacers. The handle is a Ward Gay style finger grip in desert ironwood and the figure is amazing as already mentioned. The overall length measures 9 1/8" and it comes in a simple and ready to use belt pouch sheath.
