At this point we're convinced that the Behring Made™ Alaskan is an unstoppable force. The blade is hand forged from 3/16" thick high carbon 01 tool steel and is highly adaptable with a thumb ramp and deep finger choil for a choked up grip when necessary- plus it features a razor sharp hollow grind and hammermark finish that measures 4 1/2" from tip to guard. The nickel silver guard is soldered in place above black and maroon fiber, aluminum and musk ox boss spacers. The handle is premium sambar stag antler that provides an incredible texture and natural coloration, and we pinned it through the tang with aluminum to ensure it's rock solid. The overall length measures 9 1/8" and it comes a Warlander Leather pouch sheath.
