This is really a beautiful hunting knife. This is an older model which varies slightly from newer offerings but most noticeably in the grip. This one has a nice, slightly opaque jade with a very subtle ripple pattern that I hope photographed OK. From tip to bottom a little over a foot long. This was never used and in superb condition but, since it is not brand new the blade does areas where the surface color looks a little different then the other areas. This might even be the natural temper of the steel but I know little about modern hunting knives. I imagine that it shouldn't need anything beyond normal cleaning techniques on such knives. Really a gorgeous knife offered at a price below current production pricing but probably a better knife then what is now seen.
