    and here I etched the blade as the 1.2442 is very prone to stain..

    Thank you Sirs for your kind comments!
    Soon I will tell how the blued blade will hold up the finish.
    Only downside of 1.2442 but on the other side, it takes such a fine, keen, long lasting edge...

    Regards

    Soon my eldest nephew will get 10 years old, so is there a better present than a knife for a boy?
    8cm blade from 2,7mm stock 1.2442 and a very fine edge.
    11cm handle, even ok for an adult.
    Still in need for a pommel and lanyard.

    All kids in my family will get a knife with 10 years, a tradition a friend of my family started when I was a kid.
    Soon my younger son will turn 10, too ;)

    ..and just finished, this "Norse" - a Puukko in my style.

    gun metal ferrule, steller sea cow handle.

    The sea cow had some holes inside and I tried to stabalize these, but the epoxi turned out grey :( so I had to repeat this, the result now is pitch black.
