Just in time for Thanksgiving :D

This is my latest. It sports a flawless billet of Bruce Evans's laminated steel. Composed of 1084/95/L6 158 layers if I remember correctly. Lost the tag that was on the billet. :footinmou
It is 19" OAL 13 3/8 " Blade 1 15/16 widest point. The masterpiece of a sheath is by Martin (Sandy) Morrissey.
The handle has sambar stag bolsters, whitetail pommel,white oak wrapped with rawhide core,nickel-silver bands and pins, and pure iron pins in bolsters and pommel. Hope ya'll like it.

That is an awesome freakin' knife!!! Absolutely love the blade shape. The handle is very original and well done. But it's the blade man, the blade...................

Wow--right up my alley. Lonnnnng, guardless, and pointy. I like, I like. :D

Wonderful combination of materials for the handle. Very period-looking. Sandy did you up nicely on this, as did Bruce. Congrats on such fine work!

Got to handle this pup last weekend and it is stunning in every aspect. Nothing about this knife that is "not to love".

Mark, it was great spending time with you and thank you (and Carl) for a great time!
