Hey everyone! I have this newest left-handed piece available.

1084 steel
255mm length
60mm height
3.1mm thickness at heel
1.6mm thickness towards tip
Approximately ~200-210g weight
Fully tapered and skeletonized tang

Stabilized Cottonwood from Craig Stevens’ Studio
Black G10 Liners
Black G10 Saya included

I am fairly proud of these one. It was an experiment at first to see if I could get the lightest full-tang handle possible, and I think I’ve gotten pretty close. The handle is from a beautiful block I got from Craig – maybe I’m biased though, since my favorite color is red. It has a pretty thin grind.

I haven’t gotten a chance to take photos of the saya with it yet (and more pictures with other knives from the batch), but I will get to that soon after finals are done. I am shooting a short film with it on Saturday.

$650 + Shipping
