WE ARE LIVE!!!
The Gau 8 Neck Knife shown above is up for grabs! This is a 48HR auction exclusive to The OG.
Due to the rarity of the steel and the months of testing put into its heat treatment, there is a reserve that must be met in order to secure the purchase. You won’t find this steel homogeneously heat treated to be a usable knife anywhere else in the world. That is not a figure of speech. There is no one else.
The knife is entirely hand forged from the raw Avenger Barrel. The blade is flat ground and will sport a convex edge for proper cutting performance. The rifled portion was very carefully forged to keep it fully intact and was subsequently polished for contrast. The tang of the knife is forge tapered by hand to keep it properly balanced and add some class. The handle is done in OD Canvas Micarta secured with carbon fiber hardware.
Specs for the knife are as follows:
Blade Length: 3"
Thickness: .25" with tapered tang
Steel: Gau 8 Avenger Barrel
Handle: OD Canvas Micarta
Hardware: Aerospace-grade Carbon Fiber
