This knife is a custom special commission. It is 7 7/8″ overall with a full tang. Like the Stoneman, the person this knife was designed for needed a good all around, versatile hiking/camping blade. The 3 1/2″ long by 1 1/4″ wide flat ground blade gives him what he would need for these purposes.
The blade is 5/32″ thick D-2 High Carbon Tool Steel, considered by many to be the best carbon steel for knife blades. It has a combination of superior abrasion resistance and toughness. It holds an edge very well for a long time. It is not stainless steel so it will rust if it is not looked after!
The bolster is brass. Liners are blue and green resin impregnated fiber to off-set the giraffe bone handle. The sheath is full cow leather stained dark brown custom handmade for this knife, laced with braided cord.

TJ gave my brother a hand made knife and he loved it. ..Peter is a baggage handler at greyhound lines for now and will get a lot of use out of a custom knife….I am amazed that it is something that TJ wanted to do and after a lot of time and effort has become the artist we all knew he had in him. .. So pleased you have found a joy to channel your talents…nita. .. .. ..always your fan. .. ..<3
