This knifes total length is right about 15" long!!! I have used a 7 1/4" long damascus blade that suits the large carved antler handle carved by Jeff II Hawks. He has carved a wolf track & wolf on the end along with a eagle & feathers on the side. I have used golden horn to make a guard. The handle length is 7 1/2". It all looks very sharp together. As you may or may not have noticed this knife stands up on it own very nicely. I have buffed it up some to give it a little shine but left it with a fairly rustic look still.
