I just finished up this Ankou. It was ground from 0.200" thick 80crv2, with textured flats. It has a hollow grid with a satin finish. The handle is Coyote Brown G10 over Black G10 Liners with Carbon Fiber Pins and Lanyard tube. It has an exposed pommel. The blade is 6 1/4" long with a thickness of 0.020 behind the edge. The handle is just a little lighter in color than the photos show, this is a difficult knife to photograph. The second photo properly represents the handle color.
