Product is a hand made knife. All measurements and weights approximate.
Please note that this is a NOT a nightmare grind blade rather it is a recurve bowie with a Yagyu Fat Nose Tip (for enhanced bleed and easy exfiltration). The fine tip is for ease of penetration; it is supported by the Yagyu Fat Nose and use of custom-knife quality tool steel. Forge Master K. Ali designed the knife and thought that being on the receiving end would be a nightmare. He originally designated it as a "Nightmare 2" but we had to rename it to specify the handle style so as to avoid confusion with other products.
The grip is rather special. The shape combined with the knife's point of balance makes it a joy to hold. Forge Master K. Ali adapted the finger indent of a Loveless New York Special with the butt of a Loveless Sub-hilt and then improved the side contouring for extra comfort. He added a Modell Design LLC-style thumbrest, with gimping on both the front and back, for control and withdrawal.
Note the use of a tapered tang with red liners.
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!
