!!!Extra large and extra in charge!!!
This is such a cool knife. Pics don’t seem to accurately convey the scale. From the super talented hands of Alex Horn @halexorn
, one of the bladesmiths at @cartercutlery
, this blade is 290mm/ 11.5” from heel to tip, and stands a solid 60mm/ 2.5” tall. Almost 420mm/ 16.5” overall. #thatsnotaknifethisisaknife
Blade is 52100 carbon steel (my favorite), with an integral bolster and awesomely aggressive western profile (my favorite) with a nice looooong flat, and the handle is natural canvas micarta (also my favorite). I have been a huge admirer of Alex’s work for a while now, so I am super excited to finally try one out for myself. I didn’t intend to get his super sized version first, but it was true love, and I couldn’t resist. More to come.
