The blade for this knife is one I have had on hand for several months. Believe it came from some L-6 saw steel that I also did several thermal cycles before I totally heat treated it. Before I started building this knife I decided that the blade was to fat so I ground more away without the use of a belt grinder. I'm really looking forward to having my belt grinder working now. I did buy a new HF 7" angle grinder and used my old bench grinder for most of this knife. Rubbed the blade out several times by hand to remove the scratches. The blade is 5 3/4". I used modern iron for the fittings and a really nice piece of sambar stag for the handle. Overall this knife is 11". I even use my belt grinder when I do my leather work but found out the old bench grinder works pretty good on leather.

What a great looking knife Raymond! The fact that you used a bench grinder for most of the knife shows how true it is that great makers can make great things with minimal tools.

The finish on the blade is so smooth.
