Theater knife

This is meant to look like a WWII theater knife, something else rehandled like a Kbar.  Forged L6, acid etched and stone tumbled.   The fittings are all etched and tumbled mild with a bit of micarta thrown in.  I'm not sure about the but cap or the cap nut.  I'm still fussing with it.

I said that.

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.

Yep, stacked leather, it's the first one I've ever done.  I'm reasonably pleased for a first one.

I think that you pulled off the look well.  It looks like something someone's grandfather carried through the Pacific islands.

Here is the finished piece.  I resized the skull crusher (actually made about three more) and went with a round pommel.  All of the furniture is mild steel, acid etched, stone tumbled, and blued.  I think it has the look I was after, like someone had seen a Kbar, but not really looked at it.
