Chuck Gedraitis Knives

Here are the finished pics. The blade is 3-7/8in long made of W-1. The front and rear bolsters are 416ss and the scales are stag. I hid the bolster screws for a cleaner look and sculpted the front bolster to look like a habaki. The backspacer runs the full length of the knife up to the stop pin and is made of carbon fiber. Overall length is 8-5/8in.
Thanks for looking,

Excellent work Chuck! That knife is a beaut. Can you show some pictures of the spine and spring area. That hamon really pops and the lines are so clean.
