    A2 tool steel, stabilized spalted hackberry, micarta liners, matching ferro rod.

    Here is the description from the original eBay listing:

    "Completely handmade by me in my local knife shop is this heavy duty puukko knife designed for whatever bushcraft task you made have a need for. What sets this knife apart from almost any other puukko is its rigid full tang which means optimal toughness in a wilderness environment. A quick word on thinking of the design of this model: Yes it has no guard, and for good reason. A guard usually gets in the way for very fine carving tasks and this edge goes almost right up to the handle. This knife is in all senses a CRAFTING blade meant for cutting, NOT stabbing. When you stab a knife is when the potential danger of slipping onto the sharpened edge comes into play. 99 percent of bushcraft tasks do not require stabbing, but if you should ever find yourself in need to do so, just place your thumb over the rounded backside and viola. The edge is a very sharp 12 degree each side scandi in A2 tool steel @ 59HRC. The heat treat finish has been left on blade flats to show hamon, and in my opinion adds elegance to the design. natural brown micarta liners with Stabilized Spalted hackberry scales, and brass hardware. A completely matching 4'' long firesteel is included in the sale with matching hardware. The knife is 8 3/4'' overall with just shy of 4'' blade length. Sharpened spine for showing sparks with that custom firesteel or tinder prep."

    Bark River Bushcrafter sheath with EEP treatment.

    With the sheath, I have $205 in this knife. Asking $120.

    Ummm... I lost it. It's somewhere in the house. With all my other knives. I will measure it when I find it.

    I took those pics like the day before yesterday, so it can't have gone far.

    This is so embarrassing.

    My wife used to be really good at finding stuff, but no more.

    It's here somewhere.

    Will be in touch.

    Found it!

    Will find a ruler or calipers tomorrow. It's late.

    I could delete those last three posts, if I act fast, and just say 1/8th inch.
