Product is a hand made knife. All measurements and weights approximate.
This is a Loveless Big Bear-style Sub-Hilt fighter knife except Forge Master K. Ali did not use the quillon tip forward prongs of the Big Bear design.
The swage has been sharpened in the same manner you would an axe or Butterfly Sword. That means it will penetrate, have some ability to survive nicking and provide tip strength, but not cut paper. That said, there is a good chance law enforcement will regard it is sharp for purposes of dagger laws. If you want more, since this is 440C you can sharpen it by hand.
