Also finished this one today. Blade is suminagashi, engraved as a test for a different commission. Bolster and finial are blackened steel, with copper accents on the bolster. Handle is carved bog oak and sheath is tooled leather with copper rivets:

You slay me. Your carving just kills me every time I see it.

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

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

Sweet Jake.

i like the idea of carving one side of the blade  and the other blank…..

good job of coordination with handle/blade & sheath…… the whole package has a organic  grown feel i think…..
