The AGA Campolin 13" swinguard knives are giant, sturdy and very cool. They aren't a skinny elongation of the 11" swinguards, every portion of this knife is thicker and stronger. This knife features a polished dagger style stainless steel blade, silver nickel oval firing button and sliding safety, brass pins, and ebony wood scales clad over stamped brass liners. We do not recommend this knife for carry, but as an exceptional collector's piece. As with all Italian knives these are handmade, this is not some perfect sterile CNC machined knife.
