Hey guys sorry I have been late posting a new thread, I have been working 7 days a week. Finally got some time in the shop this evening.

Please post finished pics in this thread and we will draw on the 15th.

Here is my humble offering, its the first knife Ive had time to make in almost 5 months.
The pics looks like there are scratches but it must just be the lighting.
Specs
1084 hollow ground on a 14" wheel

Here's my santoku

Santoku of AEB-L with spalted, mostly sapwood Ambonya burl that I had WSSI stabilize.
A pair of the boss's copper Corby bolts.

Same pictures as in the other thread but it's got an edge now :biggrin:

Older pic of this one. I have since added a few strategic holes in the sheath, and the scales...
Just need to neaten up the sheath and etch my mark on it, and this one is ready to go

5/32" CPM154CM, heat treat by Peter's
Flat ground with large swedge
Handle is Orange G10 with Toxic Green 0.030 liner and SS hardware. Now also includes orange and green lanyard.
Sheath is 1 solid piece of kydex with integral belt loop. My first try at something like this...

1/8" 1084, stabilized red wood handles, mosaic. The sheath is carbon fiber appearance kydex setup for iwb.
The blade IS a belt finish, but not as rough as it looks in the pic. I did a little more cleanup after the pic in general, but most of what's showing in the image is actually just polishing compound I hadn't wiped sufficiently.

Here is my submission. As I reported earlier, this is a standby, not my first choice...kept having problems with the scales lifting for some reason and I didn't want to send it out hoping it would be ok, if I'm not 100% sure it's not going to fail, it doesn't leave my hands.

The blade is a drop point skinner in AUS-8 with cryo tempering, hand pulled "brushed" finish, jimping done with a carbide cutter. Handle is Arizona Desert Ironwood, finished to 2000g and waxed, with matching brass and stainless mosaic pins and a matching mosaic thong tube. Lanyard is black paracord, Chris Reeve style knot, 2 metal beads and 1 wood bead. The sheath is 8/9oz veg-tan, basic pouch design with accent tooling, wet formed, dyed black and hand stitched. Sheath is hot finished with a mixture of beeswax/paraffin/NFO, then multiple coats of Johnson's Paste Wax is applied and buffed.

The display box was made by me, stained and lined with faux fur.

Dimensions:
Total Length: 7"
Blade: 2 3/4"
Thickness: 5/32"

There is one tiny spot on the left hand side of the blade that I am pretty upset about. I was finishing the jimping with the carbide cutter (will use files next time, that thing is too unruly), and set the knife down next to the dremel. Some how, when I sit back down I bumped the knife and the cutter nicked the blade and left a small spot on the ricasso. Too deep to get out without multiple sandings, it'll just have to serve as a beauty mark and a reminder to always be careful when working in the finishing stages.

I really wish I had a better photo setup, but I needed to get pics on tonight. I'll try to get some natural light pics outside tomorrow, those tend to look the best. It looks MUCH better in person, lol. I hope the new owner enjoys it.
