Finished this one up today. It has a 3 1/8" blade and a 4 1/4" handle. The steel is 1080 and the handle material is brass, bighorn sheep, and amboyna burl. This is probably one of the cleanest EDCs I've done yet. I used alignment pins and did most of the handle shaping off the blade, and the handle actually came out looking like I wanted it to. 

Thanks for looking.

Faye,

That is a pretty little knife and a usefull size for EDC. Have you got spacers either side of the sheep horn?  I love the amboyna burl and have one on the bench to get amboyna scales tomorrow.

I put blue fiber gaskets on both sides. It was an attempt at a very subtle red white and blue theme, but it turned out just a hair too subtle.

Looks like it worked very well for you. Any difficulties with the method?

Not really, my biggest issues were caused by a lack of attention to  the guidelines while I was grinding.
