    Just finished this small fighter and wanted to share with you folks. Blade steel is 440C, main bevels are hollow ground and the clips are flat. Mother of Pearl inlays have faux pins comprised of 4mm garnets in brass settings. Engraving is by Marcello Pedini.
    Over all length is 9 3/4". Love that pearl, thanks for looking.

    Thank you for you very generous comments Gents, enjoyed making this one. Only real issue I had was sourcing the extra thick (4 mm) MOP scales. Had a lovely set of 2.5 mm on hand but the little bit of contouring I had to do had me worried. The thicker scales were perfect, plenty to play with.
