Forged this from 12" of 5/8" round 4150, quenched in oil and torch tempered blue up to the tip. 22 3/4" from tip to butt, POB is 2 3/4" in front of the knucklebow, weight is a little under 1/4 of a pound. It's very tactical/combat weapon, so the parachord I will put on will be nice, debating on black, camo, or blood red. Very similar in design to old bayonet styles. Dropped it point down into concrete a couple times with no ill results, so I stabbed it in a couple times with no ill results, then stabbed it a bit into cinderblock, again no ill results.
