Very nice I like the finsh on the blade. Great work, did you forge out the blade or did you find 52100 in precision ground stock, or did you surface grind it down to the desired thickness

Thanks Leeco! I didn't forge this one. Although it could be done if you surface ground it after profiling the blade and spring.

This was flat stock that I surface ground

Another beautiful knife, Chris. How was the giraffe bone to work with? I've been thing about giving it a try.
Thanks Brandant! It's a little bit on the brittle side. Similar to mammoth ivory. You'll definitely need to be careful when drilling and cutting. Use new sharp belts when shaping
