"Grasshopper"

Recommended Posts

Boy oh.. so this one is an odd duck for me.  The blade is leftover bits I had from other projects past (3" blade 7 1/4" overall).  It's a four bar construction.  The spine is wrought iron, the second bar is 1095 and 15N20, and the edge is 1084.  The ferrule a sandwich of wrought iron and brass silver soldered.  The handle is stabilized quilted maple.  The sheath is hand stitched tooled (I'm still getting this down) veg tan leather.

It was a fun knife to put together and I pushed every comfort zone I could on it.  It's up on Etsy if anyone is interested.  Thanks for looking!

That's a nice little EDC. I think you have a pretty good handle on the leather tooling. That one looks good anyway.

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

I agree with Joshua, that is one fine looking EDC and the tooling shows some real skill and sophistication in the design.
