Weight is 5.4 ounces, and length is 4.5 inches closed. The price is $229 because this is, after all, a handmade knife. The Bleja does not come with a sheath, which is a shame and a scandal. However, L.L. Bean carries one that works perfectly. It’s called the Vertical/Horizontal Knife sheath, which lacks poetry, but is accurate because that’s how you can wear it, and the Item # is TA266972. There are two sizes, and you want the Small size which fits perfectly. It’s only $19.50, and is very nicely made.
