Thuya Tigerclaw 2014 Michael H. Mara

The Thuya Tigerclaw is a variation on a kerambit, a traditional SE Asian fighting knife. The blade edge is 3-1/4" of 1/8" 154 CM steel, forged with an as-forged finish, hardened to HRC 58. The knife is full tang for strength with Thuya Burl scales and two mosaic pins, 8" OAL. And sharp as a razor. No sheath at this time, but one can be made for an additional charge. $274 Sold
