Here is one I forged from 80crv2. I decided to go with a tanto style tip to it. I have lightly antique the blade for hard use.

The handle is brazilian ebony. It has been faceted all the way around and is comfortable in the hand. It is held in place with pins and G-flex epoxy.

The sheath is 7-8oz hand tooled leather. It holds the knife securely and allows for an easy draw.

Blade - 4 7/8" tip to handle
OAL - 9 3/8"

Price - sold shipped to US.

I have this posted elsewhere, so the first timestamp saying "I'll take it!" gets it.

Could you please post a photo of the blade’s spine looking down (incl tip) so as to give an idea of the thickness at the tip?
