The shape of the blade on a geometric knife needs to be specific. This knife, in particular, is versatile and will allow you to cut towards yourself and away from yourself, and this also makes it a great tool for both left and right-handed users.

Aesthetics

The blade on this knife is very short, especially in comparison to the handle. The blade is angled and very sharp, and this helps give you an extra edge and accurate shapes as you carve geometric designs into the wood. The handle is a light brown hue, which is characteristic of ashwood. 

Meanwhile, the blade is made of carbon steel and comes in a clean silver color that should remain this way even as you continue to use it. The important thing is to make sure that you keep it clean. The blade design is similar to the Beavercraft C11s, and this version is wider.
