La Pistola

Blade: 1050 – clay tempered
Handle: Eucalyptus burl – in the shape of a pistol grip, “rough” surface
Fittings: Carved bronze – antique finish
Sheath: Leather belt sheath – fighter style
Blade Length: 26.5cm / 10 1/2″
Total Length: 43cm / 17″
Misc: The idea behind this piece was to make a knife interpretation of the old flint lock pistol. The upper guard resembles the gun hammer, the ring the trigger-guard. The shape of the handle is also quite specific for this type of pistol. Photo by Högström
