This model has a 6 1/2″ blade of 52100 has a Bois D’Arc handle and comes with custom leather sheath. $335.00 plus shipping.

I have used 52100 steels for quite some time and have decided that it is the best I can use. This is the steel that I have used countless times to win and place high in the ABS cutting contests as a 5″ hunter, an 8″ fighter, and several 10″ blades in several states. This steel continues to perform.

Bare Bones Blades From 5160

I am now forging some 3/4″ diameter round bar of 5160 as an economy measure for those that would like to own a slightly less expensive blade. I have them marked down by 15 percent and priced without a sheath. This may save some on expenses and will also enable those that may want a different style sheath than I supply. As most forgers know, the 5160 does forge easier than the 52100. I am passing on the savings to my customers.

Thank you for looking at my knives and I appreciate your business.
