As usual, life happened to the original intended buyer. His loss is your gain! Up for your consideration is truly one bad ass knife! OAL is just shy of 12 inches, blade length is 7 1/16 inches, handle is 4 3/4 handle width is 9/16 inches wide. Made from 1095 3/16 inch thick steel professionally heat treated to RC 59-60 (think harder than a file) Edge is sharpened to 20 degrees. Handmade leather sheath. Handle is made from bog oak with brass pins and bolster. Bog oak comes from the Ukraine and is really special wood:
They lie there for many years without any exposure to oxygen, completely submerged. In result of the chemical processes, the sap from the wood and minerals from the water dye the wood a black color. The birthplace of Bog Oak transpires from a few extremely important components: Oak trees growing by the riverside, a certain speed of the river current, and a few definite minerals in the water. Bog Oak is an extremely rare and unique material which color speaks for itself. The light pinkish yelow color represents aging from three to four hundred years, while the black is equivalent to more than a thousand years. Like elite wines, this incomparable wood undergoes many years of preservation, enabling the wood to gain a few unique qualities. Bog Oak is incredibly stoic, and through it's longevity it obtains an unrepeated texture. For a long period of time Russian " Black wood" has been used in carpentry, jewelry, knifemaking, etc. In Rus' there are many beliefs about the healing properties that Bog Oak contains. The wood is commonly used to heal people, and was especially popular as an item that usually surrounded people. (quoted from seller)
This knife would be a great addition to any bug out bag, hunting pack or self defense in the event of a zombie apocalypse!
UPDATE: knife is now on display st Rehv Arms in Covington. So if you want to see it, stop in and say hi to Jody and the gang and give it a feel.
