This knife gave me fits. I tried to cheat on a few steps and the Knife Gods decided to make me have to redo it after breaking an inch and a half off the tip. Anyway my first frame handle and soldered guard. 1080 steel, wrought hardware, steel pins and bovine slabs, 5 1/2" from tip to guard with 3 7/8" handle. Probably going to do a rawhide sheath.

Funny: Sure doesn't look like a nightmare to me..but I know how these things can pester you in untold numbers of ways..You experienced what I commonly call a "design change"..(yeah..that's it..design change)... Still it looks pretty nice to me...How did you flatten the horn or did you get it already flat?

sometimes those repetes can be surprising! they often turn out better than if you had not messed up the first time.

Thanks guys, a old powder horn maker at a muzzle loader shoot told me it helps soften it in the boil and retain shape after dry. I don't see much difference but that's what I've done since he told me.
