Just finished up this custom order. It's modeled after the shorter version of the Ka-Bar. The blade is 5.25" long, 5/32" thick and forged from 1095. The handle is hickory with hand filed grooves. The fittings are stainless steel. The tang runs the entire length of the handle and is peened over the butt cap. I did a hand stitched leather sheath for it as well.
