    Fancy(for me) Drop Point Hunter


    ADVERTISEMENT
    This one represents a couple of a first for me. I finally decided to try a bolstered design and I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. It wasn't a cake walk though. I went through two sets of bolsters and a set of premo Thuya burl scales before I got it right.

    Also, this is the first full tang I've done with a file work under the scales.

    Anyhooooo.....

    Please offer your comments and critiques.
    Thanks for looking.

    Peter

    Here's the specs:

    Blade: 5 1/4" x 3/16" of 52100 steel, stock removal, with full flat grind and a 1200 grit hand rubbed finish.
    Handle: Cocobolo with hand files bevels, six stainless steel pins and a hidden lanyard loop. Hardened O1 steel bolsters with mild steel pins, and hand-filed bevels w/ 1200 grit finish.
    Sheath: Wickett & Craig 6-7 oz veg tanned leather with polished natural edges, faceted Cocobolo medallion and lanyard bead, and a buffed mink oil finish.

    Some photos:








    Oops, the camera found some crud around the bolster. That'll be taken care of.












    And a couple of in-progress shots showing the original Thuya slabs.

    Nice work. I like the clean uniform angles on the bolsters. Looks like a pita but it compliments the knife. Excellent work
