    This is my standard friction folder model. The blade is 3.25" long, 1/8" thick and forged from 1095. The handle is a solid 4.75" long, with a palm swell for comfortable carving. It makes a great sidekick for a larger knife or tomahawk.
    This one is sold.

    Nicely done. Osage orange is my favorite handle material.

    I'm amazed that a teenager is turning out such great knives. I received my seax and it's beautiful.

    I might need one of these, maybe in blood wood. Very cool and rustic looking.
