3,5 cm close (barrel measure) custom handcrafted barrel knife. This tiny knife has a barrel shaped body with nickel silver fittings on either end, elm wood body and 12C27 steel blade. The barrel shaped handle houses a steel blade folded on a pivot in between brass liners, which sandwich the blade when closed and extend it when opened. On the bail/ ring end of the knife is a small spring lever, which when depressed will unlock the blade assembly allowing it to be pulled out of the wooden body. There is a *T* shaped channel cut into the inside of the barrel on one end only, that accepts the blade assembly. The assembly will only fit into this channel one way. The locking spring on the assembly, fits into the smaller portion of the channel. Once the blade assembly is removed the blade can be swung into its open position and re-inserted into the wooden barrel and locked into place with the same spring lever that released it. Now it is a fixed blade knife and is very strong. The knife is closed by the same procedure in reverse. This wonderful knife has been entirely hand made, the barrel is made of elm wood, fittings are nickel silver and the blade is 12C27 steel. Pristine mint
