Started this last year sometime. Just got it finished up today. 10 1/2" double edged 1095 blade. Carved bog oak handle with boxwood accents. Steel mounts with silver trim. Laminated millboard sheath covered with pigskin with silver throat and chape.

Nice!  Is that gallery wire for the accents?  Also a fan of the pigskin sheath.  I use that from time to time myself.

Yes gallery wire. It's a more delicate soldering job than I'm comfortable with with my set up but it seems to work... The pigskin is what I used to use for sgian dubh sheaths, but I'm not so keen on it, as it has very little stretch, and feels a bit plasticky - I much prefer lambskin these days, which gives a much softer, more tactile feel, but deer or goat are also good.

Another one for the inspiration folder.....

Question, is the handle cross section round, or more oval?

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

My thoughts exactly. That flatened oval indexes well and is a much more secure grip.

Once again, this is a beauty. I really like that suspension wrap as well.
