The 4-1/4″ blade is .10″ thick O-1 Tool Steel, with a convex saber-grind to a zero-edge. Blade is selectively hardened and oil-quenched. The handle is curly maple and antler. There is a brass staple at the tip of the handle for a lanyard. The pouch sheath is 8-9 oz. top-grain vegetable-tanned leather, natural with a hand-rubbed Carnauba Wax finish. The belt loop will accept belts up to 2-1/2″ wide.
Every so often I get an odd idea- like what if William Scagel had the thought to make a ‘bush-craft’ knife in the modern idiom? Features like the convex saber-grind to a zero-edge, natural materials for the simple handle, pouch sheath etc. I don’t know if tis exactly what he’d have come up with, but it’s what came to my mind.
Hunting, camping, cooking or just knocking around in the woods, this knife would be a fine and useful companion.
