Nice triplets.What are the specs of the one with ray skin?

 

it's a 3 1/2" blade of 12-C-27 Sandvik surgical stainless, 2.5mm thick, heat treated to around 58-59 rockwell, with a narrow tang secured with a threaded brass butt-cap. The blade started out as a sgian dubh blade with a bottle opener in the spine, but i could never quite get the geometry of the bottle opener right, and it was too dangerous to sell and too ugly to keep, so i ground it off. this was pretty much a salvage job, but i think it looks pretty good. the ray skin primarily works as a lock for the knife in the sheath - which is saddlery leather glued and reinforced with copper and rivets. the second copper loop at the throat of the sheath allows the thong to be brought through there to form a belt loop.

thanks for looking, and all the kind comments,

cheers,

jake.

This design seems like mother of all integrals to me... VERY elegant. Thanks for the show!

Lovely work, that necker is a style I especially like.

Perhaps it would be edifying and amusing to have a thread on "Saves". Lord knows, I've had to do enough of them!

Welcome aboard, Kriku. So far, I believe you're the only Estonian in our midst.

About time.

Wow, that first was a salvage? Great job on all of 'em!
