<b>$500.00</b>
Oosic Hunter with Saami style sheath
Blade 5" ; Handle 4 5/8"

The Damascus is a 48 layer twist in 15N20 and 1084 steels. The handle is Oosic, which is fossilized walrus penis bone. Oosic has been used as a handle material since the Viking Age because it is extremely durable and the slight porosity helps gripping when wet. The fittings are Sterling silver & the tang extends all the way through the knife and is pinned under the pommel. The sheath is constructed in the Saami (Finnish) style with leather over wood and a very sturdy belt loop.
