This knife has a random-pattern damascus blade*, brass fittings and a stag handle. The reason for the name 'gender tester' is that due to the sweep of the handle, folks with large hands (guys) classify it as a right-handed knife while folks with smaller hands (gals) find it 'fits' better in the left hand. I can't make up my mind (NO comments!). Both blade and handle are 5 1/4" long.
