The Nessmuk was originated in the late 1700's by George "Nessmuk" Sears to be his absolute go-to fixed blade knife for all of his ultralight adventures. His legacy continues with his new one from Behring Made™ and our hats are off! Hand forged from 3/16" thick high carbon 01 tool steel, it measures 4" from tip to guard with a razor sharp hollow grind and our hammermark finish. The copper guard is soldered in place above black fiber, aluminum and copper spacers too. The handle is premium desert ironwood that we pinned through the tang with copper for a rock solid construction that won't quit. The overall length measures 8 3/4" and it comes in a custom sheath from Warlander Leather.
