This is the knife you need if you are ridin a Harley.
12 3/4 inches of Rustic Harley Chain Damascus. Forge welded in my home made propane forge, And welded with my 20 ton air/hyd press.
Overall length 12 3/4 inches.
Blade is 8 1/4 inches
Handle is 4 1/2 inches. and is Elk Horn.
Knife has a wrought iron guard and butt plate.
Knife has a 15n20 center piece with chain welded on each side.
This blade started out as a 1 1/2 inch square tube and was flattened to the 1/4 inch it is now.
The sheath has a 8-9 0unce core that is covered with Raw hide to make a rustic Western Sheath
With research and experiments this knife and sheath took about 40 hours to complete.
There are 28 inches of chain in this knife.
With the chain links very visible and a Raw hide western sheath this is a very impressive knife.
It's gotta go for $500.00
Take care
