    I got this one finished up this evening, still needs a sheath but I’m waiting on kydex since my first shipment went to the wrong address.

    4” blade 4.25” handle 1.75” wide 1/8” thick 52100 @59rc by Peters.

    Hemp wrapped leather soaked in gflex, makes it look like sinew!

    Took the blade to a dirty 220 grit so it’s got a user finish on it.

    The edge work reminds me a bit of Dave Farmer's blades back in the day. Good looking stuff.

    Nice work! The smaller blade has a Dall Deweese look to it.

    Progress has been frustrating on this. Split at least a dozen eyelets, then cut the profile too short exposing the tip.


    Got a new shell cooling off in the press
