I got the opportunity to make this knife thanks to a guy named Nick.  He wanted a big fighter, and pretty much gave me free reign on what to build.  This knife is 13.5″ overall with and 8.5″ blade of D2 steel.  The guard is wrought iron.  The contoured handle is stabilized mesquite burl, one of the best pieces of mesquite I’ve ever used.  This is the biggest knife I’ve built to date.
