This blade is stainless suminagashi effect 4mm 0.157 inch thick with VG10 core, full flat grind with a perpendicular plunge, 143mm 5.6 inch, OAL 232mm 9.1 inch

Polyester laminate scales I made about 4 years ago

Weight 123g 4.4 ounces

Sharpness tested at 140-160g on a BESS industrial tester

Ambidextrous leather sheath with waxed polyester braid stitching. I have stitched this with the use of a pricking iron, the first one I tried, let me know what you think, it gives a little different effect, a bit more tricky work but I think I like it


This one has a coin forged with my mark in silver steel (HRC64), which is useful as a fire steel scraper, golf ball marker, trinket..? etc!


Thanks for watching, comments or questions welcome

Very nice, and I like the sheath, especially the contrasting double-back stitching. Do you have a full profile view of the blade to show the proportions?

Thank you. Yes of course, it has a tapered tang, I should have included these from the start
