    This is a hand forged knife forged from a single piece of 1" high carbon steel cable..It was made here at our forge..The knife blade and butt were made by forge welding the cable into a homogenous piece of steel.the blade was then etched in a acid bath to bring out the pattern.Im proposing a trade for some marans eggs.Ill take offers on all breeds of marans. Though the only cuckoo eggs Ill take have to be from breeders stock as I already have hatchery stock and want to improve it. These knives usually sell for $50 and up(depending on size) but Im not tied up on the price..Just giving you an idea.Im an easy guy to trade with.Ill ship it priority with conformation..Just PM me here if you are interested..heres a couple of pics..Thanks
    The knifes dimensions are
    Overall length: 10"
    Blade cutting edge: 4"
    Blade width: 1"

    I like that knife. The only marans laying right now are Blue/Black/Splash, clean legged, various quality eggs, from dark to light, small to XL. They are laying four to six eggs a day.
