For Hal and some others who asked about the Oar Carver pocket knife. While they make a two blade lock back pocket knife, mine is the single blade lock back. The blade is 1 1/4 inches in length (cutting edge), while the total length closed is 3 3/4 inches. It is made by QUEEN CUTLERY. The blade is high carbon "D-2" tool steel. This is my favorite tool, but I will confess that when I got it new it had a factory edge, that even when professionally sharpened would not carve, at least the way I thought is should. It had a bevel that I did not like at all. I prefer a flat ground blade. I sent the knife to Rick at LITTLE SHAVERS, with the directions to make it carve wood. The rest is history. As I said it's now my favorite. My favorite out of many, way too many knives.
