The Integral Drop Point is one of my favorite knives to make. The blade is roughly 4.5" long hand forged from a round piece of 52100 ball bearing bar. The bolster, tang and blade are all one piece hence the name Integral. This knife is elegant light and fast. The 52100 steel is my favorite steel to work with and makes an outstanding blade. It is the perfect balance between toughness and hardness.
