This is one that is going to Arkansas next weekend. My persian fighter model with a slightly shorter blade. Of course ironwood for the handle and 416 for the guard. The blade is W-2 from you know who through Ray Kirk. It has a Larry Parsons sheath. I will probably have a couple more which I will try to post as they get done.

Have a good one.

Very nice, Brion. How big was the piece of ironwood when you started out?

Thank you Kyle, Brett, and Joe. I think it turned out well and I really like the W-2. The ironwood was a standard size block, about 5x1.5x1.75 inches. I then shaped it with the grinder then files to get the palm swell just the way I want it.
Thanks again

It's different and different can be good as it is in this case.
I too like the spine grind. Good action in the hamon.
Nice ironwood.

The reason I asked is I spent a LOT of money on two absolutely stunning blocks of presentation grade ironwood burl at Blade, but they are the standard 1 x 1.5 x 5 and I don't really want to ue them on an hunters or other small knives because they are just too expensive. I'm trying to thing of ways to use them on bigger knives.

I've seen a few persian influenced knives out there by this Tomberlin character, and they have all been really nicely designed.
