Large frontier fighting/utility knife. 1075 forged to shape blade with mild convex full grind. Differential heat treatment shows a fiery hamon. Carved North American elk crown handle. Damascus steel guard and pommel nutmade of random 1095/15n20/1018 steel by maker.
Depending on grip this huge knife handles surprisingly well at smaller cutting tasks, slicing, etc., while also having the ability to “reach out” a bit for larger tasks. Handles chopping but excels at heavy cutting.
Includes cowhide and stingray sheath, with “waist belt” and spine side retention strap
