A custom sheath is included for traveling with your knife, but should not be used for long term storage as it could cause rust. The overall length of the knife is 13.75"/349mm. HRC 61-62. 8 oz.

About the knife steel:
AEB-L is an awesome steel alloy from Sweden originally formulated as a blade steel for industrial applications, eventually making it way to become on of the most popular steel choices for custom kitchen knives. It is often preferred by many professional chefs and homecooks even over carbon. This steel is strong, durable and holds an awesome edge. It is will provide you with an excellent edge and is very easily serviced using a whetstone.
Even though this is a corrosion resistant steel alloy, It should never be left sitting in a sink full of water or a pot. Stainless steel can rust if misused or not cared for properly.
