The steel jacket on this blade was a greasy piece of twisted cable from the bottom of a scrap bin at our local metal recyclers. The edge steel in the centre of the blade is good reliable 1084 high carbon steel.
The bronze fittings were cast in Riversdale Beach sand. Local antler with serpentine we found in Hokitika, leather spacers and matai from reclaimed floorboards make up the remainder of the handle. Peened through tang.
