Product is a handmade knife. All measurements and weights approximate.
The PEW and the Fat Belly PEW were developed with input from ex-special forces, law enforcement and contractor operatives. The Fat Belly PEW is especially good for comfort and retention but a bit oversize for a six inch blade. The original PEW handle is normal sized but has been renamed as "slim." This knife has the slim PEW handle.
This is a full tang combat knife with AISI 304 stainless steel bolsters. The Blade Steel is Böhler-Uddeholm D2 Tool Steel, which is used to make dies. The swage is blunt for tip strength. It sweeps up towards the tip making this a "Persian" style knife, in our opinion. There is gimping on both sides of the thumb rest. The handle is ergonomically shaped for easier retention. The scales are made of an ironwood local to the forge. It is very stable for an affordable hardwood but NOT from Arizona and NOT Arizona Desert Ironwood.
We are a bit unhappy with the satin finish of the Ricasso on the logo side. We think it would be unfair to charge the full freight of $325 for this knife and so have classified this as a cosmetic second and priced accordingly then dropped it $75 for Black Friday.
Things to Consider Before Ordering:
1) Check with your local laws to determine the legality of all items ordered. Seller is not responsible for any items seized by customs or other authorities and will not knowingly make shipments to countries where any items are illegal. By placing an order, you are representing that you are an adult, the product(s) ordered are lawful in your local jurisdiction and that you will use the products in compliance with all applicable laws. You accept full responsibility and costs for all customs fees and VAT. Seller will not replace or refund any item confiscated by local authorities or customs agents.
2) These are handmade. There will be slight imperfections on most handmade work commensurate with its pricing.
3) Plain Language Disclaimer: Knives are inherently dangerous. Glass breakers are also very dangerous to the user and should be used only in cases of life or death, in a manner that avoids exposing the arm or hand to the broken glass after penetration (strike near the edge so the window frame blocks ingress), and with protective gear. Swords with sharp edges are for display only and should not be used for martial arts training. Even blunt swords are dangerous. You agree that you won't sue the Seller, designer or maker for anything related to using this product for any reason whatsoever and you (and we) really mean it!
4) Do not store knife in leather sheath long term because the chemicals in leather can corrode/tarnish metal.
