This Behring Made is a truly beautiful knife that's ready and able to do some ugly work. The blade is hand forged high carbon 01 tool steel that measures 4 1/2" from tip to guard with a razor sharp hollow grind and a hammmermark finish. The copper guard is soldered in place above black, white copper and four desert ironwood spacers. The musk ox butt brings the overall length to 9" and is pinned with copper. This guy comes in a premium Mudbone hand tooled sheath, and the set is guaranteed.
