The blade is full-tang and is finished in steel N690Co with flat grind. The N690Co is stainless so asks for low-maintenance and retains its sharpness. It is also fairly tough for stainless steel, which means it can take some damage as well.
The handle is made of green canvas micarta. Practical to use and it does not require any maintenance. The red liners give the knife a luxurious finish. The liners also have a practical function since it limits the friction between the blade and the handle material.
The knife comes with a hand-made sheath, made of leather.

KAT delivered the knife very quickly and well wrapped, very impressed both times I have used this company. The knife itself is first rate, no spaces between liner, blade and scales. The grind is even and arrived very sharp, the steel oozes quality, the dangler sheath seems well stitched and a good quality leather. The micarta scales look good with the red liner and the handle shape is great for anyone but those with large hands. The spine is square and sharp for use with a fire steel. I often spend time in wet environments so N690c steel means I don't have to look out for rust and it still keeps a good edge. I wished I had bought one sooner, it's a great little knife.
