This custom blacksmith folding knife is made up of two hand-forged components fastened together with a hammered rivet. The handle is 1/8″ thick flat steel which was stamped with the customer’s initials then folded. The blade and tang component is forged from 1084 high carbon tool steel. The knife is held closed and open with friction, and the tang falls under the area that is gripped when the knife is open for additional security. A copper lanyard sleeve and copper and brass washers add a dash of color and contrast.
