This swift slicer 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 point first quench, followed by triple temper cycles, producing a very tough and resilient cutting and slicing tool. The integral hilt is tightly wrapped with natural brown elk hyde, that feels very comfortable in the hand, and absorbs moisture while wielding. This piece comes complete with a hand stitched and dyed leather sheath featuring hand tooled ridge texturing.
This light blade is carried by the smiths wife. She gives it high marks.

Great craftsmanship on both the blade and sheath.

I mostly love it and maybe it's my error and I'm suppose to be using gloves but the area for holding it is very small and it really hurts your hand very badly if you try to chop anything with it
