You won't believe the texture of the sambar stag on this alaskan until you finally hold it in your hand. Just gnarly enough for a truly confident grip- and comfortable too! The blade is hand forged high carbon steel and measures 4" from tip to guard with a razor sharp hollow grind and hammermark finish. The copper guard is soldered in place above black, green and copper spacers as well as the stag handle. The overall length measures 8 3/4" and it comes in our Behring Made pouch style sheath.
