Military Style Sub-Hilt Fighting Knife.

from the slab handle version.

to the stacked copal amber handle.

Below shows a slightly more collectable version of the
Military Style Sub-Hilt fighter.
This fighter has a 7" blade made from 1/4" thick 440c stainless steel
and is decorated with filework on its' spine.
The guards & butt are 304 stainless steel. The handle is Burmese jade.
The jade adds a good bit of weight to the knife,
making it almost impractical to carry.
But this knife will perform the same duties as the lighter weight version.

Price for a 7" Military Style Sub-Hilt Fighter with a rock handle
such as the jade shown here is USD$1000.
