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 full tang has been solidly mounted with hickory handle scales, secured with 1/4" brass pins and scorched to harden, then sealed. This piece comes complete with a hand stitched and dyed leather sheath, featuring double reversible horizontal belt loops, and a snap retention strap.
O.A.L 16 inches
