Here's rougly what I'm thinking.  Kind of a mix of an old motif on a design that would be handy today. Sort of a chubby pukko meets lil' sax. Meant to be worn horizontally. Deeply etched blade, a

I don't believe it!  Zeb managed to make a small knife!  Lol  That thing is going to be sweet!

That's unpossible

Truthfully speaking, as we all know, the "deadline" is more of a guideline. Anyway, @Zeb Camper you were supposed to make a Puukko, not a sword. ;) 

I think, if you petition the group to extend, you will find enough support.

I almost mailed you a small chunk of twist, but I had to leave town on very short notice. Glad you could make it!

Not sure I can do a high relief carving because I got carried away shaping the handle. 

What do you guys think? Metal buttcap be a little overkill for this one? I kind of like the look it has now...

I agree that a full butt cap would be too much.  If it were me, I would be considering inlaying a small disk in the butt to cover the tennon.  Then again, it is late August, and it is certainly good enough.

Thanks ya'll! I asked my little nephew (2) what he thought of it last night. The antler turned a reddish color with the vinegroon. I asked him if it should be white. He said yeah, and wanted to hold the thing. Broke my heart that I had to say no. 

But isnt that cool? Hes 2 and hardly knows what it is, and all he wanted to do was hold it. That says something. 

But, the fam thinks it's done, and I guess ya'll agree. I'm scared to mess with it, so sheath time. 

Hey, Alan, I saw that my post shares the same title as one of yours while I was browsing the other night. I'll change it if you'de like.
