Knife is made from mirror polished 5/8 inch thick D2 bar stock with red stabilized buckeye burl inlay. 4 1/2 inch long and .300 inch thickness at the blade, 9 1/2 inch OAL. Rockwell: 61C

Hatchet came from 1/2 inch bar stock D2 with 4 inch cutting edge. Mirror polished. Overall length is 13 1/2 inches. Hatchet shaft is tapered down toward the handle to add weight forward. G10 was laminated between the burl scales to help absorb shock loads for the hatchet handle.

Nice job, Mike. Sheath is slick, too.
