Forged from 1084 with hammered bronze guard and pommel. The handle is ancient Great Lakes salvaged birdseye maple that I stabilized and dyed. The customer specifically wanted an over sized handle since he has gorilla hands. All the commercial knives he has bought never had a big enough handle. I finally got my MoJo back after the surgery and infection. It felt great to get back out in the shop and get some projects finished.

I wanted to try out my new basket weave punch on the sheath. It was made from 10 oz leather and double stitched with flax thread.

Thanks! That is what custom is all about, making exactly what a client wants but can't get in the stores.
