8” x 2.2” workhorse in a “brute de forge”, or forge finished style out of 80crv2 steel. The spine is sturdy and the knife has a good heft, but is convex ground and surprisingly thin behind the edge for good performance and sharpenability. There is a swedge on the tip of the knife. This knife would do great in a heavy butchery and prep environment. Handled in stabilized elm with phenolic resin and nickel.
