The Alaskan from Behring Made© is a true staple in any serious gear bag. The blade is hand forged from 3/16" thick high carbon 01 tool steel and it measures 4 1/2" from tip to guard with a razor sharp hollow grind and our hammermark finish. The nickel silver guard is soldered in place above black and white fiber, aluminum, copper and stablized seashell spacers- how cool is that?! The handle is gorgeous cocobolo wood with a nice fat aluminum pin that runs through the tang for a rock solid construction. The overall length measures 9" and this one comes in a classic pouch sheath from Warlander Leather.
