12/25/06 Merry Christmas. I day off from work to catch up a little in the shop. This is an Ironwood burl handle on this knife. Premium quality burl has a three-dimensional look that simply doesn’t photograph but it is amazing. The blade is 4 1/4” from tip to bolster. The OAL is 8 7/8” and is around .184” thick. The handle is a stout 7/8”. This knife is a handful. The bolsters are concave at the rear and hand-fitted to the scales. They are also sculpted for finger relief on both sides. The steel is CPM154 and is mirrored all the way. The leather sheath is a metal belt clip butterfly pouch and is tripled dyed.
