My Kith

First off I'm mildly embarrassed to present this with all the wonderful work coming from you guys, but I've done what I can and am proud for me. It's not totally finished at this point I have some fine tuning to do to the handle, and never having made a sheath before I'm currently on attempt #2.

 

So here is what I have.

 

4 inch random blade @ 160 layers 4 1/2 inch handle for 8.5 overall. The guard is made from the same billet etched deep cleaned up and then heat colored. Handle is camphor, ebony, and Purpleheart with brass spacers. (mosaic pin for end will be in Friday)

 

Still working on the backstory but it should be done by the time this all comes together.

 

Thanks for looking I hope you like it

Well done! Never be embarassed to show your work if you've honestly given it your best shot.

 

That is what is great about this forum. The general recognition that we are all on the same road. Some are farther along the road than others, but the road, the journey, the quest unites us.

 

Cheers!

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt
