San Mai Scout II in Foil Resin
This San Mai Scout II is made from a combination steels; thin layers of nickel are sandwiched between two outer layers and an inner core of 1095 high carbon steel. The individual layers were forge welded together to form a single billet of steel which was then forged to shape. The blade is about 9 inches overall in length with a 4.5 inch cutting edge that has been sanded by hand and etched to reveal the individual layers of different steels.
The handle material is custom composite mix of black resin and foil and the contoured handle has been fitted with two black micarta pins and a stainless steel lanyard tube.
The sheath is made from premium Wickets & Craig vegetable tanned leather made specifically for this knife. Both have been cut to shape, dyed and stitched by hand.
