The blade is a Schmieden blade. The blade is 5 1/2" long, reaching a total length of the knife of 9 1/2" long. The sheath is made of 100% rawhide leather.

The Leather Braiding technique has been handed down from one generation of ''gauchos'' to the next for centuries. The process is slow and difficult, and it is redeemed by each artisans every time they give birth to a new piece. It is fundamental to follow every step to obtain a high quality product. The leather braider's work begins by choosing the raw material: the rawhide. Rawhide is leather in its natural state, completely natural, without chemical components which could modify its look or feel. Rawhide keeps the natural color and every feature of the animal's skin, and it is usually combined with colt leather. The latter gives birth to the leather strips known as ''tientos'', which are the basic material for braiding.

The main characteristics of gaucho puñales are the slim, elegant spear pointed blade, the presence of an integrally forged bolster or "button" (in Spanish, botón) which reinforces and divides the blade from its tang and file marks on the back of the blade. Due to its size, this knife is considered a "Verijero" knife.

This beautiful piece is ideal for gift, collector's item or simply for eating a delicious "asado" (barbecue).
