Laurin Stainless 54mm with ricasso Blade

54carvingwithricassostainless

This would make a good knife for carving wood or bone. The ricasso (the squared portion ar the base of the blade) is not traditional, but does make it easier to get a tight fit between the base of the blade and the bolster/guard, which is important because you don't want any moisture getting inside your handle.

  Overall Length: 5.25 inches (13.3 cm)
  Blade Length: 2.125 inches (5.4 cm)

  Blade Thickness: 0.06 inches (1.5 mm)
