Wow, that looks awesome! I like the contrast it throws. Did you drill the case, or split and router it?

Looking good. You managed to get a lot more definition when you stretched the leather around the wood sheath insert than I did, and it looks like you even used heavier leather to boot. I like it :)

Well done!

 

Great lines on the knife. That shape is something I see quite often in puukko-knives made here in Funland. Nice pommel!
