Hello all, I had to take a brief break from all of those puukkos (they were starting to drive me a bit nutty) to work on a custom order. The title says it all. I still have to finish the sheath tomorrow but I thought I would share the knife so far. The handle is brass and cocobolo, but the end piece is a chunk of 200 year old walnut I had lying around. The blade is 5160 sanded to a 600 grit satin finish with mirrored edges, and a stainless steel pin. Overall length is 16 inches with a blade length of 9 inches. Thanks for looking!

Haha I suppose we will find out once the customer gets his hands on it! This project started as a headache but ended up being one of my favorites. I was able to nearly finish the sheath today but not quite so here is a sneak peak. A point goes to anyone who can guess what wood the sheath is made out of...better quality close ups to some upon completion tomorrow.

Dillon you are the closest so far, it's douglas fur. I would have liked to use a curly maple but wasn't able to get a large enough piece in time to finish is today.
