This one has been lying around my shop in various stages of completion for about 2 years. It's my first attempt at a hand-rubbed finish and boy do I have new respect for you guys that finish all your blades this way! Gracious! I've got over 400 hours rubbing this thing and it's still got flaws! (I know, boo-hoo...) Here are the stats: 11-1/2"; blade, 17"; OAL. Aldo's W-2, aged copper, and Sambar stag. Thanks to Dave Stephens for the tip on how to file groove around the guard!!! and thanks to JD Smith for the challenge to step up my game. P.S. - It's my 2nd ever sheath. Cowhide and rattl
