    Location: Pelham, NH nights and weekends, Ispwich, MA during the work day.

    Description: Forged from 5160 steel (leaf spring), annealed, ground, heat treated, tempered, handle material cut and secured (epoxy and brass pins) then shaped. Buffed to a nice shine as well as sharpened to be like a razor. It will cut.

    Overall length is 13", with a blade of 8-1/4" to 8-3/8" long, approximately 1/4" width. Handle is black walnut.

    This is NOT a factory produced blade, or blank. Everything here came from raw stock. Steel had to be cut from a larger piece, then forged over the span of about three hours to rough shape. Then ground over the course of several/many more hours before it could be heat treated and tempered (also done by me).

    I also made the kydex sheath that's included with this. It has a belt clip attached (designed for up to 1-1/2" wide belts) with screws. Sheath is black kydex with black rivets, screws and belt clip.

    Accessories: Custom formed kydex sheath included.

    Selling Terms: Face to face, in person.

    Price: $250 (OBRO, within reason).
    Items willing to take in trade for/towards this: projectiles for 223/5.56, 308 Winchester brass (not 7.61x51 Nato), 308 projectiles, 45 ACP projectiles (plated/jacketed 230gr round nose, 185gr RNHB, 200gr RN), Magpul D60. No 9mm components/supplies. PM me if you have something, worst I'll say is 'no'.

    Contact Information: PM me.
