This knife is made from 0.125 thick D2 tool steel. The overall length of the knife is 9 inches; the handle is 4 inches long, the blade is 5 inches long by 1 5/8 wise. It was designed by me, and cut from D2 bar stock. It was heat hardened and tempered in a forge using a pyrometer to monitor temperature. The D2 steel is an air hardening steel, so air quenching was used in the hardening process. The blade is taken to a high shine for aesthetics. The handle is made of G10, and the kydex sheath was made by me as well.
Knife making is a hobby for me, and I thoroughly enjoy it. I hope you enjoy the knife as much as I enjoyed making it. None of my knives are perfect, but they each have their own story which is what makes them special.
