Blade is O1 @ HRC 61 Hand rubbed finish
Handle as stated consists of 3840 year old bog oak,
white vulcanized fiber and mammoth tooth spacer, buffalo horn ferrule.
I don't have a scale, but this thing is silly light!
Thanks for looking!!
Absolutely amazing, my friend!
Damn, you've got skills!
Yet another beautiful Rodrigue knife. That mammoth tooth is so money.
Forgot to add
153mm on the edge
31 mm high
full distal taper, convex grind
rounded choil and spine
Thanks every body, glad you like this little one. It is a pleasant switch from those 300 mm+ blades.
Very cool to see how the pros do it.
Fantastic job, Pierre. Very nice grind and nice shot of the choil.
