The wood handle you see in the photo may not be the exact color and figure pattern you receive. Photo may not be actual size, please refer to given dimensions.
      Our blades have a near mirror finish. This alows the blade move through the wood smoothly. There may be tooling marks still on the knife blank which do not affect the performance of the knife.
