This locking liner has a forged blade made of 1.2513, some steel rarity, that is not produced since the mid 70's.It was used to produce the ignition wheels of lighters, to mention one of its purposes. This could make it appropriate showing up in a forging forum. so we have 1.2513 for the blade with 93 mm in length, 6Al4V titanium for the liners, spring, clip and other mechanical parts are all made from high carbon spring steel and the handle slabs are made from Padouk root( Pterocarpus Macrocarpus). Overall length measures 210 mm.

I have yet to weigh it, but to me it feels as if I'm holding a full tang. 4.25" handle, 3.25" blade,
