This Purdey knife has a 3½” blade and a 4″ handle (curved for ergonomy). 6 brass rivets and a single brass guard. Buffalo horn has been used for knife handle.
The blade is made from Damascus steel that is known for its strength and retaining sharpness, which is ideal for use in knife making. It is especially noted for the beautiful patterning which is evident on the surface of the blade. In the process to create this unique steel the craftsman takes layers of different metals – alternately hard and soft – and through repeated hammering forges a single billet of metal.
This metal is then repeatedly twisted and manipulated according to the desired depth.
