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.
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.
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.
