    I bought this knife and I'm very pleased. It is made of 52100 steel and natural canvas micarta. Blade length 4 inch, blade thickness 1/8, full flat grind with convex on the edge. Thin, light, comfortable and sharp as a razor.

    Thanks guys.This knife is not intended for batoning ( Not a hard use type of blade). It is very "thin behind the edge", but slices very easy, and very easy to sharpen.

    Properly rounded transitions so no right angles from blade to tang. Much less likely to snap. Beautiful knife. I"m sure your pleased.

    Nice knife. 52100 Ball-Bearing steel is my favorite! I have several hand forged knives using that steel, my favorite is an Ed Fowler/ABS MS, 4-3/4" Pronghorn. The other is a P. J. Tomes/ABS MS, replica Scagel #17. Mr. Tomes is known for his thin, strong knives. This one is no exception. Both take and keep an exceptional edge.

    Enjoy your new knife in good health.

    52100 is also my favorite steel. Most of my custom knives are made of 52100 steel. Also I like thin knives because they cut better and easier to be sharp. Thank you.

    Looks good and it will serve you well. I also like 52100 as a knife steel. It relatively easy to sharpen, has decent edge retention, somewhat rust resistant as long as it isn't stored in a wet sheath (don't ask how I know. I ended up using fine sand paper and had to restart the patina) after an outing.
