    I made this knife a couple of months ago but didn't want to post it until I made a sheath for it. So here it is. I'm calling it a camp knife because of the generous belly and the single guard lug. Comments and critiques welcomed. Specs are:

    Blade Steel: Aldo's 1084FG
    Blade Dimensions: 10" X 2"
    Guard: 416SS
    Thong Tube: 316SS
    OAL: 15.75"
    Handle: Stabilized Spalted Snakeskin Sycamore from Mark at Burl Source
    Sheath: Hand stitched, two piece construction with stainless D ring

    Nice work! Fit and finish looks very clean. What grit did you take the blade up to?

    It's exceedingly well executed and designed....clean, distinct and purposeful grinding, excellent hand satin finish and top level stitching on the sheath....you are quite gifted and skilled.

    I don't personally care for the black grain line in the wood, but it isn't my knife.

    Best Regards,

    Thanks everybody!

    In case I forgot to mention, there is also a hamon. I chose not to etch it. Here's a crappy pic to give you an idea.
