Between the orders I managed to finish this competition knife for the Dutch Knife Exhibition this November. It is forged out of 1.2510 (O1) and is 7mm thick at the spine and tapered towards the point.
The guard and pommel are stainless steel, the grip green linnen micarta which I blasted.
I gave the knife a foliage green gunkote finish (the color is darker than on the photo's) because I want to use it for some other acticities also.


Blade: 24.5 cm (9.6 inches)

Grip: 13 cm (5.1 inches)

He Keith,

The ricasso has become my "trademark" for bowies and hunting knives. I'm not aware of any other maker who does it this way.
