    3rd is a semi forged knife, I like to say that because the knife was generally shaped via forging but completely finished on belt grinder, as it was created from an odd scrap of steel I had laying in the bone pile. Any way this one is 1095 hc clay quenched and acid etched.

    8 3/4 OAL
    blade is 3 1/2" clay quenched and acid etched to bring out Hamon
    handle is elk horn with copper bolster
    sheath is 8-8oz leather dyed saddle tan.
