The ancient Japanese ITO wrap meets the a rough, rugged forged steel blade. Seriously beefy 1/4” thick forged O1 tool steel with reclaimed bourbon barrel oak core Ito wrap handle. Matching aged leather sheath with grip clip. Full tang construction with drilled out handle to lighten and add balance. Feels lighter than you would think for how thick the steel is. Just a substantial awesome knife. 10”over all 5” blade.
