The Trophy is well named. The handle is an attractive composite of curly birch, antler and leather. The laminated stainless blade is about 3 1/2" long, and the knife is almost 8" overall. There is a leather sheath with a metal reinforcing band, and a safety tab that engages the stud on the pommel. The antler adds weight to the handle and the knife feels like a solid worker. This one has a through tang.
