Knife Of The Day XII


     Our Knife Of The Day XII is Joel Worley’s tapered-tang straight knife with a 5.5-inch fileworked blade of a raindrop-pattern damascus forged from 1080 and 15n20 carbon steels. A flared finger groove doubles as a guard. The handle is sheep horn and the belt sheath features pit viper inlay.
