This is a beautiful and solidly crafted double-edged fighter model from Schuyler. The blade is mirror polished in the hollows and satin finished in the flats. The top edge is sharpened approximately 5 inches back beginning at the tip. Spine thickness is 1/4 inch with a blade depth of 1 1/2 inches. Tapered tang. Fabulous mammoth bark ivory scales. The handle is so well contoured with deep finger grooves that once you grip this knife you don't want to let it go. A deep index finger groove forward of the guard provides an additional grip option. This is an excellent piece of work and the pictures just can't do it full justice.
