This blade has been kicking around the shop for several months now. I started to put it together several times but there was always something else that got my attention. Its a done deal now except for the edge but I'll do that in a few months after I get around to making a sheath for it. :D Its got an almost 9" 5160 blade, wagon wheel wrought iron fittings, and an osage orange handle that I lightly dyed to bring out the wood grain. Its just under 13 1/2".

the grain pattern in that wood is beautiful.
This knife has great lines, I love it!

I've got some black and brown leather dye mixed together. Put the dye on as light as you can let it dry and then go over it with fine steel wool or 2000 grit paper.

I love it Ray. That one's got a unique and interesting blade profile ---- it has a very menacing look about it, particularly that point!
