Iron Spur Fighter - Dark Sapele Takedown
This is one of two new Iron Spur Fighters built as a take-down. The blade is my Laminated Steel (1095 and 410 stainless). Guard and take-down nut are blackened carbon steel with satin-finished stainless spacers. The handle is dark Sapele. Sapele is from Africa and is a relative of mahogany. It is relatively rare to find a specimen that is this aggressively quilted. I've never done this before, but rather than scalloping out the butt end of the handle, I ran a hollow down the length of the handle. It feels great in the hand and gives a really positive grip.
The knife comes with a Dragonskin sheath as shown and ships in a "BF" branded crate.
Blade is 7" with an overall of 12".
