Fiddleback Forge By AR Runt A2 Knife Wenge Handles Snakeskin Kydex Sheath
I am one of Fiddleback Forges newest dealers!
Brand new knife, this is the Runt model that is made of A2 Tool Steel. The handle is made of Wenge and has black and green liners. The knife is 5-1/4" overall and has a 2-1/8" blade that is 1" wide and 1/8" in thickness.
Comes with one of my custom taco style .080 Snake scale pattern Kydex sheath with green Kydex liner. The sheaths eyelets are set for a small Tek Lok. Very smooth pull. Nice slim sheath with thumb ramp goes right in your pocket.
A-2 Steel. An excellent air hardening tool steel used by handmade knife makers and by speciality makers like Bark River as well. A-2 is a steel that trades wear resistance for toughness. It is used in custom made fighting knives by makers such as Phill Hartsfield, Mike Snody and John Fitzen (Razor Edge US). Performs best at about 60-61 Rc (see hardness). It contains about 1% Carbon, 1% Molybdenum, and 5% Chromium.
