The AGA Campolin 13" swinguard knives are giant, sturdy and very cool. They aren't a skinny elongation of the 11" swinguards, every potion of this knife is thicker and stronger. This knife features a polished dagger style stainless steel blade, oval firing button and real stag handles. There is a sliding safety on the knife's front as well. We do not recommend this knife for carry, but it an exceptional collector's piece. As with all Italian knives these are hand made, this is not some perfect sterile CNC machined knife.
