Koa Coffin Handle Woodhead
This is 1 of a series of 3 knives all sharing this blade shape and material, featuring thick spine, long flat grind with a razor sharp edge. Steel is 1095 high carbon, with differential heat treatment. This particular knife shape was inspired by the classic "woodhead" bowie style from the 1850's. The handle is stabilized Koa wood, permanently attached to a lightened, tapered tang.
This knife is lighter and more agile than it appears, mostly due to its deep grind, lightened tang and simple construction. The small 1095 handguard is permanently pressed to the tang with zero gap around the broad ricasso.
This one-of-a-kind knife is currently available for purchase: $1400USD. You can email to arrange a viewing, or purchase directly.
