I made this one from O1 tool steel. I finished the entire blade in black oxide and polished it to a charcoal grey then sealed it.

The blade is 3-1/2" long and wrapped in kangaroo leather. BTW, those skulls are hand carved from ivory and originated from Tibet.

That ought to jump right out of your hand. Nice job on the braid! I atempted doing one simular a few years back and would always get mixed. To many over's and under's.

Great wrap on the handle, looks really cool. Kangaroo leather is great, I made a stock-whip out of a hide once, greased the strands up and went to work - loved every minute of it, but never even thought about it for handle wrappings/knife furniture. You've just inspired me to try it out on a sheath! thanks mate :D
