    Just finishing up a new one.

    It's 17. 1/8" overall and weighes 32oz.
    The blade (1095) is 11. 13/16" X 2. 3/16" X 1/4" thick.
    The "big" handle is 5" long with Curly Maple scales.

    I'll make a 2 snap Bolo sheath like this one;

    Then off it goes.

    Thanks for looking,
    Mike

    Awesome is a word that I rarely use. It certainly fits here though.

    Fine knife. Bet it gets the job done with ease.

    Very nice, that looks like it was born clearing brush ;) I thought the handle was stacked leather until I read the description a few more times.

    I sized the belly strap snap without the knife in it somehow (I'm getting old I guess) and
    had to move it. Doesn't hurt the user combo any but it does change the price.
