Forged from a high-alloy steel (HWS-1K) proprietary to Hanwei, with an edge hardness of 58-60HRc and excellent corrosion resistance, edge-holding and ease of sharpening. The blade thickness is 1/4, and the blade is saber ground. An aggressive thumb grip is provided on the back of the blade for blade control. The Tang is very substantial, terminating in a short thread at the pommel. The stacked-leather handle employs bark-tanned leather and is secured by a sleeve nut at the pommel. The guard and pommel are investment cast in stainless steel.
The Sheath is made of bark-tanned leather with stainless steel reinforcing at the wear points and has a strap-and-snap retainer.
