O1 Tool Steel Riggers Knife .125″ thick, 3″ Blade, 7″ OAL blued finish. Chocolate Brown dyed vegetable tanned leather sheath with brown stitching, Copper Rivets, and strap with Chicago screws.
I use Tool Steel as a nod to my training as a machinist, and my family history in manufacturing. O1 Tool Steel is known to maintain an excellent edge, but you will need to maintain it. Bluing is a surface finish that begins to force a patina on the blade. In the event that your blade gets wet for a prolonged time or is improperly stored and rust forms, you can remove it with ultra fine steel wool. Just use some light oil and rub the length of the blade with the steel wool lightly to remove any loose rust. Wipe the blade off with a clean towel and re-oil. Sharpen your blade as necessary. For prolonged storage, oil the blade lightly and store outside of the sheath, especially if the sheath is leather. A dry location such as your gun safe is ideal for storage of any of your knives.
