One downside to College is being cut off from my shop, so I've been trying to make the most of my brief summer. I finally got back into the swing of things after a couple rough test pieces to give my muscles a chance to regain their memory. I'm really pleased with how this came together, it went surprisingly smooth the whole way along.

 

The blade is 5160. The handle is thuya burl with wrought iron fittings.

 

6.5" blade

4.75" handle

11.25" OAL

 

Thanks to you all for looking!

From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put.

That handle looks comfortable... nice blade shape, and leatherwork too.

" How much useful knowledge is lost by the scattered forms in which it is ushered to the world! How many solitary students spend half their lives in making discoveries which had been perfected a century before their time, for want of a condensed exhibition of what is known."
