ARIES KNIFE is now made in Nepal. This is an Integral Leaf Spring Steel knife that was designed first for Go Time. A tough blade built for tough times . The Guard, The Tang , The Blade and Hand Protector are of a one piece design for added strength – No welding to fail. It is well balanced as a lot of the weight is in the hand protector and that counter balances the blade. Aries is now made in Nepal per my guidance. Aries comes with a Leather sheath . The knife weight varies slightly (+/- a couple of grams) as these are hand forged . Price includes shipping inside the USA.
