It is a Russian-style slat knife, scissor-biased, about 12 in length with about a 1 1/2in peak. The tree is 1/2 thick.(photo is of another larger list, but the tool is similar) if you prefer 5/8inch see my other ads. I can do them with shorter edges, but prefer a longer cutting surface on mine. I can grind them near any angle you prefer, or I'll sell you a similar one in the photo that's some kind of standard angle. I sell these without handles to save the buyer's money, assuming also the one who buys this knows how to work a little enough to make a handle for her. These are forged by hand and crushed from steel w1 and are hardened to hold a serious edge, (w1 hardened above rc62).
