Joshua States Posted June 21, 2022 Share Posted June 21, 2022 (edited) I haven't posted much stuff here lately, and that's because I have been working on one knife since February and the design elements have given me a lot of .....experience. This is built to the customer's specifications and contains many things I typically do not do, but c'est la vie. It is finally ready to show and I'll start making the sheath on Wednesday. The blade is O1 and about 5.375" long. The ring guard is a single piece of 416 SS forged to shape from a 1/2" slice (maybe 3/4"?) of round bar 1.5" in diameter. Frame and pommel cap are 410 SS and the turned finial nut is 416 SS. There is no glue holding this knife together. It is all held together with mechanical connections and can be fully disassembled. There is a video coming of how it goes together.

I've been there before.” The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.
