This jungle knife has a 1.2550 (60WCrV8) blade forged from round stock. A single chunk of Ceylon iron wood was used for handle and sheath and the fittings are made from fire finished copper.

The tang goes through the handle and is riveted on the butt forming the center of the flower.

The blade has 200 mm  in length and the overall length measures 345 mm.

The origin of the name comes from the bird of prey in whose territory I found the wood.

Cheers

Wow, that knife looks like it would be equally at home in hard use, or in a display case.  This is a balance that I find very difficult to achieve.

Agreed, pretty much everything I've seen from templehound seems like it should be both used hard and admired when not in use.  I'm a bit jealous.

Every small detail is so perfectly executed, and the overall flow of lines (the most important thing, in my opinion) is beautiful.

It is a guarantee that everyone here on IFI wants one...and would cherish it.  Let me correct myself....everyone everywhere wants one....
