This knife comes with quite a history. Made with a folded sheet metal ferro blackened handle and high carbon hollow ground blade, these knives are great no frills, solid knives. They spring lock (with a slip joint) fully folded, mid fold, and fully unfolded. The image of a Douk-Douk (sorcerer) impressed into the handle is one of the most exciting elements of the aesthetic of this knife. We love the little drawing. This is the larger of the two we carry.
