truck leaf spring. I don't know much else about the steel.

Good looking piece. The blade shape is excellent for daily working and I really like how you built up the handle.

 

What's waxed canvas micarta? I've never heard of that before, but I like the look. It certainly looks like a durable sheath. How'd you do that clasp feature?

hey,

 

thanks you guys. I made the sheath by shaping the thin canvas micarta to the handle while it was still pliable while gluing. then I waxed it with pure beeswax to waterproof it. the toggle is carved bone stitched to the sheath and a leather thong can be hooked over it to keep the blade secure. the sheath is actually pretty tight since it was formed to the knife but it hangs parallel to the ground so the knife would eventually fall out.
