12658; The "Stainless Wood Carving Basic" is an entry level alternative with a stainless steel blade and molded plastic handle. The handle has just a bit of a guard to help keep inexperienced fingers off the edge of the blade. The blade is nominally 3" (78mm) but current inventory is a little shorter, just under 3 7/8" (75mm). It's 9/16" wide at the base, and .079" thick. Again, the blade is shaped for carving, and is stainless steel, not laminated. It's supplied with a functional plastic sheath.
