My trifecta of new known steels.

Well it is a story of good and bad news, the good news is the liners and scales are gued up and look good. The bad is that the etched steel between scales and handles has to be blued. Here are the ugly of my learning curve.


But in the same sense it is also the fact that the knife is in the final sanding stages and I can use a q tip and super blue to fix the shine.
With this said and these posted am off to sand the small bumps out of my handle.

Here is my finished handle of osage orange. Sanded to only 1k due to it starting to feel like plastic.


Here is the other side of the handle.

It is not a work of art that holds an edge its a functioning tool that has a bit of appeal.
Thank you to all who have helped with wisdom, tips, suggestions, critiques, and most of all THANK YOU John Doyle for not letting me short change myself.

The whole thing is finished and has already started to change color.





The blue color choice for a liner really popped on the shiny blade but now is lost due to the sudued choice.



Here is another functional but not a pretty work of art sheath. I still need to work on not making them too wide. Here is the edge of my kydex insert, a 1/8" away from my stitching.


I tried to be creative to dress up the sheath and well its unique now. Lol

Possibly. Had a feller ask me what I wanted to sell it to him for. Told him it was my personal knife and I dont think I could sell it. Then his reply was let him know when I make another what I would charge him for it.
