This patch knife has an unusual steeply angled handle. The deer horn handle is 4" long, the silver ferrule 5/8" long, and the socketed tanged blade another 3 7/8". The triangular blade, perhaps black smith made, is much thicker at the socket, and has lost over 1/8" of steel due to frequent honing. It still retains a very keen edge.
