Finished this one up this morning. According to my Texas connection 5 1/2" blades can be legally carried and that's how long this 1065 blade is. Its got a curly bubinga handle, wrought iron fittings, and a 2 ply sheath. 10" overall.

Ray that's a great looking knife! Your sheaths are really nice too. It's always good to see a new Richard knife hit the airwaves.

Michael, Glad your able to view the knife today. I had just emailed Wayne to have him send you the photo's I sent him yesterday. I'll be bringing this knife to Eugene on Thursday so you'll get to play with it.

Ray - thanks for the presentation to 5160 Club last night - great detail on your sheath making. Not to mention that I got to wrap my hand around the handle of the Texas BLO in the flesh! Mikey likes.

Michael, Good to meet you Thursday night. Wayne was wanting Eric and I to wait till September to do our sheath talk since he was expecting much less people to show up Thursday night because of it being summer vacation time. I don't think anymore people could have fit into the room than what was there Thursday night. Both Eric and I enjoyed sharing knowledge. Eric's old Scandinavian collection was sure interesting. I've got some pictures I took of some of his old knives I think I might just post sometime today.

Looks great! Whenever I get back from a trip, you always seem to have something new. : ) I definitely needed the inspiration. Keep it up!
