Each blade is made with high-carbon stainless steel that has a RC hardness 56-58 degrees (hard enough to hold its edge), yet the carbon content allows for ease of sharpening. The Yachtsman knife is approximately 8-1/4" long with a 4 x 15/16" blade, which features a natural handle that is comprised of rosewood. It also comes with a Marlin spike and both the knife and spike fit snug into a custom leather sheath.
