Kanetsune Hunting Knife

Code:  J3

A traditional Japanese Kanetsune knife with a blue steel ("Aogami") 15 layer folded blade ("Blue steel core").  The hilt and scabbard are made of oak.  This pattern is the traditional hunting knife pattern in Japan.  It has a hidden tang construction that is thicker than the usual stick tang. Like many Japanese knifes, the temper is harder that what would find in a similar western knife making this a very good "slicing" knife but not as good a "chopper".  It is exttremely sharp and holds an edge very well.

Blade length: 3 ½ inches;  Overall length 8 ¼ inches.
