This is the nearly flawless type of work we've come to expect from you!  The sheath design is quite unusual!  I am not quite sure how the sheath's single slot is intended to work.  Very cool stuff though!

Thank You bigfootnampa!

The long hole is the option to tie the knife to the belt or the backpack.

That's beautiful. I'm working on my first San Mai ( cable and band saw blade) right now. I've made a copper bolster and have been searching for a patina look that I like. If you don't mind me asking how did you achieve that color on your copper . Thanks .

I used potassium polysulfide (https://translate.google.co.th/translate?hl=en&sl=de&u=https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schwefelleber&prev=search)

Thank You Biker Bo!

Liver of sulfur or Hepar is an old name for a mixture of potassium sulfide , potassium polysulfide , potassium and potassium sulfate . They are obtained by melting together potassium carbonate (potash) and sulfur absence of air at 250 ° C.

The name goes back to the liver brown color of the mixture.
