This hefty chopper was carefully hand forged from one solid piece of lively 5160 high carbon spring steel. The authentic "Brute de forge" surface texture gives this piece lots of unique character. After forging, the entire piece was normalized several times, Then the blade received a fiery edge quench, followed by triple temper cycles, producing a very tough and resilient cutting tool. The integral hilt is tightly wrapped with natural brown elk hyde, that feels very comfortable in the hand, and absorbs moisture while working.
This piece comes complete with a hand stitched and dyed leather sheath.
O.A.L 16 inches
blade length 10 inches
edge hardness 58-59rc

I bought this for my husband for Father's day. He was so impressed, and loves it. He noticed the amazing quality and craftsmanship.

Delivery time exceeded the longest estimate by at least four days. Such an expensive item should have been sent with a more reliable carrier, such as UPS or FedEx. I would have happily paid the extra cost. Now I am unsure if I will even receive my item given the bizarre tracking history.

Took a bit longer to get than expected but well worth the wait! It's gorgeous and feels great. Hasn't left my hand since it arrived a 3 days ago lol...only complaint so far is that it came dull as a baseball bat. Nothing 30 mins on a stone didn't cure though.... Love it and can't wait to see how it performs feeding the wood stove and preparing meals next winter camping trip 🤙
