    This one sports an antique finish and some of the nicest handle material I have ever seen. I am unsure of the name of it but I am sure the owner will chime in and tell us:thumbup:

    This one is made from 3/16" thick O-1 differently Ht'd to 60RC at the edge.
    Stainless pins and tube
    9 ozleather sheath treated in bees wax.

    Funny you should ask.....

    I sent Dave an e-mail to this link and just got this reply back from him...

    "Mike,
    I looked at the pic and it is a close match to the grips. We had a tough time with them. Wood had lots of holes and cracks and were a little small for the frame. Everything came together in the end and they look as good as any I have seen.
    David"


    So it sounds like they'll go together perfectly!!!:cool:

    I can't wait to see them together!!! Pics will be forthcoming!!!

    THANKS AGAIN,

    Mike

    That is an awesome combo with the aged finish and a beautiful piece wood.
     
  9. I agree, the wood is very nice. The Antique finish does help set the tone also, a great looking working knife.

    Maybe the new owner will post a matching set pic when he has time..??

    There was a lot of voids in this piece of wood and to be honest I was a bit concerned if I was gonna be able to make it happen. But, it all worked out and freakin sweet if I do say so myself:thumbup:

    I am more than confident you will love this one man.

    Nick:)

    Damn Nick! What a knife. Looks PERFECT!

    What did you antique with? I use cold blueing and bleach and about 2 hrs.
    I get this effect.....

    Dont mean to hijack the thread but I had to ask cause thats more subtle than mine and its perfect for that wood!

    Hi B, I use the exact same method. I use the splashless bleach though. It seems to work better for me.
