Fade to Black 6 inch (150mm) petty blade knife. This knife has a super strong wa-style octagonal polyurethane resin handle, filled with a violet resin from the blade toward the butt of the knife, where the color fades to black. Flecked through the handle is gold leaf flake. Purple to black with speckled gold, like a most beautiful sunset.
The blade is made from molybdenum vanadium [stainless] steel, which is a mid-grade stainless steel hardened to HRC 57. Nothing fancy, but gets the job done, won’t rust, and easy to sharpen. You won't have to baby this knife. The edge angle is sharpened to 15 degrees and stropped for a razor sharp edge. Full flat grind (tapers from spine to cutting edge). The blade is 6” (150 mm) long, 1.122” (29.5 mm) tall, & 0.073” (1.85 mm) thick at the spine with a distal taper (gets thinner as it goes to the tip). The total length of the knife is 10.7” (272 mm).
