This is a traditional craft knife, specially designed to give you total control for carving wood. It has a long 4" handle and relatively short, 2½" blade, so that you can get closer to your work, allowing greater control. The handle is wrapped in woven cord, serving both aesthetic and ergonomic purposes. The blade is made of three layers of laminated steel. Features single-piece construction (full tang). A generous bolster keeps your fingers on the handle as you work. 6½" overall, the blade is very sharp. It’s a lovely tool.Completely hand made.
