German Eye Brand Copperhead, 2 1/2" Carbon Steel Blade, White Imitation Pearl Handle
Eye Brand knives, sometimes called German Eye, have been Hammer forged in Solingen Germany by the Carl Schlieper family for over 100 years. Eye Brand Knives still use forged blades.
Reviewer's note: Great using knives with hammer forged steel. They don't go to alot of trouble to fit and finish. Expect minor imperfections. Handle pins are not domed and spun, just hammered down. Best carbon steel around. A favorite with Ranchers in Texas!
Hammer Forged blades: Eye Brand Knives is one of the few companies that still uses the age old method of hammer forging its blades. Most traditional knives today are cold stamped, but Eye Brand still forges the steel to shape. Hammer forging compresses and realigns the blade steel's grain structure, thereby increasing the toughness and edge holding characteristics of the knife blade. It is a more costly and time consuming process, but worth the effort.

The knife received does not resemble the one advertised. It appears to look like cracked ice rather than opaque bone. It does not have the slight yellowish cast as pictured. A pin near the enmblem appears to be developing a subsurface crack. I am sorely disappointed. I am returning it for a correction or a refund.
