This integral remains one of my favorite knives.  It is so simple, and there are so few parts, and yet it is really hard to beat for style and function.  The full-tang blade is forged from a 3/4" round bar of 52100.  The blade flats are hand-rubbed while all other exposed steel parts are mirror polished.  Not only is this a cool look, it is very practical, and gives the steel much greater rust resistance where it will likely encounter sweaty palms.  The scales are mammoth ivory fastened with domed nickel silver pins.
