Stabilized spalted blackline maple handle scales. Black pins and spacer. Spine jimping for grip. Includes a handmade full grain leather sheath with pull the dot snap and tiger thread. Blade features a true hamon and some beautiful alloy banding wich is a rare treat. I like the alloy banding on this particular knife but for the most part i do not like it on my knives because i did not put it their. Some makers loves and and try to recreate it, personal preferance i suppose. But it looks great with the spalted maple. And only 3 or 4 of my knives have ever had it. A truly handmade , high quality knife made by a craftsman, outdoorsman, and warrior. A beautiful knife that will last generations if cared for.
