Here's a couple new pieces that are a bit on the strange side. My first attempt at a half integral. The blade was forged from 3/4" round 6150. From where the blade comes out of the handle its 5 1/4", and about 9 1/2" long overall. I used a deer crown for the handle that I dyed and sealed.

The fatter knife has a blade forged from what I think is John Deere drive shaft steel. Its 5160 but a better grade. Its got a 4 1/4" blade, a wrought iron fitting, and another crown that I also colored and sealed. I actually made it as a sub tang. I used a piece of iron telegraph wire for the pin. :D This knife is around 8 1/2" over all. Both have my two ply sheaths.

Nice work RAY!

I'm really liking the integral piece. And both sheaths are very cool.

Raymond, these remind me of stone faces, hey two more and you could call it the "Mount Rushmore" knife set.

Bruce, Mt Rushmore had entered my mind. Still need to figure things out a little bit more. I've got a new secret ingredient I'm going to try on sheaths tomorrow. I may have all the bugs worked out this time. I'm having fun and teaching myself a few things.
