THIS KNIFE HAS BEEN REDUCED IN PRICE AND REPOSTED HERE.
Good morning guys,
I've been holding onto this guy until I could clean up the scratch in the sheath (visible in the first photo). Using the magic of a touch-up coat of Gel Antique, it is now all but invisible.
The plan for this knife was for a dark look that complemented the redwood burl, so I went with a blued guard and a bit of a darker etch on the blade. This redwood has a nice organic flow to it with open pores and grain. Oftentimes I will fill all pores with CA, but in this case chose not to. Because the block was stabilized by K&G, I felt comfortable leaving a more natural look and simply sealing with a multi-coat tung-oil finish.
This knife is light and fast in the hand, having a very comfortable handle and a blade that starts at ~3/16" thick at the guard with a smooth distal taper. The clip is unsharpened.
