NAG – Chopper

This one is a custom order that I finished up today. It’s a chopper, built to the customer’s specs.

Here are the specs:

-Handle is 8-9 oz leather slabs, wrapped in epoxy soaked hemp cord.
-Steel is W2 hardened to a goal of 61 HRC
-OAL: 17.5″
-Blade length 12.5″
-Height at ricasso: 2″
-Thickness at ricasso: 0.2″

This thing is a beast in the hand. It likes to chop!
