    Pretty happy about this one, inspired by the great Bill Scagel.
    The blade is 5" long, 5/32" thick and forged from 1095 with a full flat grind. The handle is made from Elk antler with stacked leather, OD canvas micarta, black spacers and brass. The tang runs the complete length of the handle and is peened over the butt cap. The overall length is 10". I also did a hand stitched and tooled leather sheath for it.
    I'd love to hear your thoughts!

    Very nice - I like it. The design comes together nicely, my kind of style.

    That's a real nice looking knife, the black spacers, the OD, the brass leather and antler...kind of a darker tone that fits very well together.
