This knife was made in 2004, the year I got my Mastersmith stamp. It became one of the most requested knives I made for many years.
The knife is forged 52100, hand-finished on the flats and mirror polished along the spine. The guard and ferrule are stainless, finished the same two-tone way as the blade. The handle is California Buckeye which has been a particular favorite of mine for a long time.
