  • Size: Knife: Length overall: 7.5" (19.1 cm), Blade Length: 3.25" (8.3 cm), Thickness: .126" (3.2 mm)
  • Weight: Knife:4.0 oz. (113 grams) Sheath: 3.6 oz.(102 grams)
  • Blade: 440C High Chromium Martensitic Stainless Tool Steel, Hardened and Tempered to Rockwell C57, hollow ground and satin finished
  • Bolsters, Fittings: Brass, mirror polished
  • Handle: African Sandalwood (Tamboti) hardwood
  • Sheath: Hand-tooled leather
  • Knife: A handsome small drop point knife, the Mirach is named for a bright star in the constellation Andromeda. This Mirach is a great working knife with a clean satin finished 440C high chromium stainless steel blade, hollow ground. The drop point makes the knife easy to sheath, and the thin blade has just the right geometry for a long-lived cutting edge after repeated sharpenings. The grind is perfectly radiused at the termination, the lead-off preserves just enough spine for good strength. The knife is easy to clean with no filework and the tang is tapered to reduce handle weight while the deep choil gives a good place to start the cutting edge. My client requested the knife to be fitted with brass, so the bolsters and pins are warm and brightly polished. The bolsters are dovetailed and bed a pair of beautiful African Sandalwood (Tamboti) hardwood handle scales that are smoothly polished and smell great! The knife is light in the blade for accurate work with a good length of grip in the handle for control.
  • Sheath: The sheath for this Mirach is simple and clean, made of leather shoulder, hand-tooled with a tidy pattern, and hand-stitched with polyester sinew for great toughness and longevity. The belt loop is double-row stitched for strength, and the sheath is dyed a rich medium brown, and sealed for resistance against the elements.
  • This is one of a matching pair. See photos below and other knife here.

Thanks, R. K!
