I would like to thank you all for the interest. Here is where I'm at so far. Sorry for the long delay I have been having some medical issues and haven't been able to get in the shop.

Looking good, I like the lashing holes. Bery interested in seeing the sheath system too...
Looking good! Hope you are doing better, I'm sure you'd rather spend more time in the shop.
Oh, and a not so subtle suggestion: It isn't a "combat" knife, so tacticool stealth and camouflage are not desirable. Blue, orange, neon toxic green, or glow in the dark G10. Or a custom pattern of hi-vis colors! I'd like to be able to find the knife when the inevitable happens (I put it down rather than back in the sheath or drop it) during a bad situation.
