I forged this camp knife out of a round of W1 that a guy was selling on the forum. The handle is supposed to be African blackwood, but i think im starting to question that.

The knife is very well balanced and has a forged in taper to the tang. The blade is flat ground with a slight convex edge.

thanks for look'en
