Note: Each blade is handmade in Indonesia and therefore may have slight variations in sizes as well as small imperfections in the finishing or construction dimensions. Variations and slightly irregular lines are common among all handmade blades. We believe that these imperfections do not affect performance. Because the blade is made with a high carbon steel, it can be sharpened very well, but it will rust quickly. We recommend keeping your blade oiled or waxed.
Made for small hands.

When I ordered this blade, the description seemed like it would be a bit bigger. (That's just my perception.). So when I got it, I was a bit concerned with the size. The grip is made for someone with much smaller bands. I'd only be able to slash with it. If I thrust into anything hard, my hand would slide onto the blade.
