I have a lot of Bryan Crow Damascus blades and I decided to thin out the herd a little. This is a stag, or elk handle/hilt, Damascus steel, double edged, long knife. It is a very good looking knife and made right here in the U.S.A. in 2006. The handle is 5 1/2 inches long including the hilt, with the blade being approximately 15.5 inches, making for a total knife length of 21 inches. The blade is 1 5/8in. wide at the hilt and tapers down to the point. The knife also comes with a hand made leather sheath with a strap of genuine snake skin that circles the sheath. The inside of the sheath is also lined with foam so that you can put an extra little bit of oil on the blade and you can store it in the sheath without it rusting all to heck. This knife would make a great addition to anyone's knife collection, or a unique gift for that someone who "has everything".
