Hello, I am new to the Forum and new to Bladesmithing. This is my very first Custom ordered knife which was completed this summer, 2018'. The blade up to the guard/ricasso is 5.25 inches. there to the butt is 5. The customer has large hands so was made just for him. I forged it from a 1980 Camaro coil spring quenched in oil then etched in ferric chloride to show grain structure. Sorry the pics suck. It's my first run thru on taking them. They will be better next time. learned a lot from this project.
