Wrought: made by hammering. That pretty much describes this fighter perfectly. I think this might be the first time I've made a largely forged, minimally finished knife with a guard. Most have been full-tang camp knives. But I got on a roll and wanted to do this.
The blade is 52100, forged very close to final shape, and only ground enough to bring the edge and clip to a sharp edge. The surfaces that were ground are hand-finished and the entire blade is blued. The curved guard is antique wrought iron. The handle is a beautiful piece of English Walnut with some thin stainless accents.
The sheath is a high-ride version with a pebble tooling pattern. The blade is 8.5" with an overall length of 14"
