The style is Joe Keeslar brute, with the integral guard, which is neat and very handy. I made a file work on top of the blade, and except the edge I left it raw (brute). The size is a massive just over 12”, the thickness is 1/4” widest point 1 3/8. Handle is made out of zebra wood. Of course is razor sharp. Comes with a leather sheath as well.
