Hand Forged Knives > Kitchen Knives

This piece was made for a small mens' boutique, (Portland Trading Co.) It is currently available there for sale. The blade was forged from a leaf spring and the handle is genuine Maine moose antler, local birchbark and brass. I wish the photo captured the beautiful hamon, (Japanese style transition line where the hard edge steel forms).

A sturdy through tang and 1/4"+ thick spine make this as much a hatchet as a knife
