Full sheath provided

The knife is a san-mai constructed blade with an O1 core and flanking slabs of random pattern-damascus. If you look at the tip of the blade, you can see the O1 peeping out of the sandwich. The handle is stag with a convenient 'locking' stub (it fits nicely between the fingers). The sheath is ostrich leather. The bolster and pommel are wrought-iron that came from a Civil-War period prison in Atlanta (or maybe I should say 'War Between the States" considering the source of the metal).
