A little blade I am about to finish , a japanese style Damascus skinner . ready to do traditional japanese handle wrap using imported samekawa and blue imported japanese ito cord . will finish today sometime , no glue will be used , no need for it, the rayskin is very rough and holds cord real tight .Skin has nice pearl and ,I will use authentic japanese knots to hold in place . will post pics of knife and sheath later . Overall length of knife is about 7.5 " with 3+" cutting edge. this is a handforged piece.
