Product is a hand made knife. All measurements and weights approximate.
Knife legend Bob Loveless designed the "Dixon Fighter" knife. At maximum length it is one serious pig-sticker; this one is a bit shorter and more the length appropriate for most combat users. This specific knife feels great in the hand. The swage is about as sharp as an axe blade (too sharp and you get a weak tip), which means that for law enforcement purposes this will likely be regarded as a dagger-style weapon.
The blade is satin finish Böhler-Uddeholm D2 Carbon Tool Steel, professionally tempered to HRC 58. D2 is recognized by many top knife makers as the best carbon steel for knives. The hilt is made of AISI 304 stainless steel. The blade has a gentle distal taper offsetting the quite visibly tapered tang.
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.

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 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) We recommend against storing the sheath near the blade (including in any wood presentation box with the blade) as tanning oils and vapors cause corrosion.
