This is another great carving done by DJW Kelsey. She does super nice work. I was going to use as a cane handle but I had two big blade to use & this fit this Herder (made in Germany)7 1/2" blade real well. It looks like cinnamon burl wood that I have knotched out to work as a guard. Great knife to show of at a dinner party when serving up the meat! The handle is about 5" & the total length of the knife is 1 foot. Antler stand not included.
