IH04-18 Belt Knife

This knife has a 5″ selectively-hardened 5160 spring-steel blade. The blade is 1/4″ thick at the base with a full-length distal taper. The blade is ground on a slight convex curve from the spine to the zero-ground cutting edge.

The brass guard is 7/16″ thick and is secured to the tang with silver-solder. The handle is composed of a section of wood and another of antler, separated by brass spacer. The wood section of the handle is stabilized California Buckeye Burl.

The sheath is 6-7 oz. top-grain vegetable-tanned leather dyed brown with Fiebings Oil Dye. The hand-stitching is waxed #7 Linen thread reinforced with black enameled steel rivets. The belt-slots will accommodate belts up to 2″ wide.

A classic hunter in the style of William Scagel, this knife should make an excellent companion on your outdoor adventures. Extremely rigid and sharp without being overly heavy, with an ample handle for a good grip and leverage. The wood of the handle is exceptional and unique, and has been stabilized with acrylic resin to maintain it good looks indefinitely.
