Unfortunately, that means I don't have the time to take any really good pics. :angry:

 

Specs:

Nickel-silver (Ni/Si) fittings with minor silicon bronze spacer. Black micarta scales and rope filed frame. Flush Ni/Si pins.

I wish I could embiggen the pictures. That turned out really really nice. Is that a 4 bar twist? Whatever it is, I really love it, and I love how dark the whole thing is.

Thanks guys, This was the first time I got Turkish twist to cooperate and not get all stretched out in forging the blade shape in.

 

Wes: It's a 4-bar blade, yes. I just cannot remember if they were 13 layer bars or 23....... The blade is done with Birchwood Casey cold bluing cream. I think I owe a bit of thanks to someone here for recommending the cream over the liquid. It does seem to work better.

 

Jason: Thanks for the sheath compliment. I was a leather worker a long time ago and have started getting back into my tooling again. I even started to do some free-hand carving again.

the welding, the finish, the pins, and the spacer/guard assembly are each very cool. And, it all fits together wonderfully.
