Will W. Posted February 10, 2017 Share Posted February 10, 2017 Good day, everyone. I finished this blade a little while ago. It's similar to the last knife I posted, but I wanted to challenge myself, so I did a three piece handle, and it definitely tested my patience and skill (while humbling both, I am still quite green.) It is flawed, but overall, I'm happy with how it turned out. The black sections are white walnut, and the red is oak. 3/16" pins for the oak and 1/8" for the walnut. The 1/8" pins, I learned, are quite tricky to peen, and they chipped a few times (not proud of them.) The blade itself is 5160, dual cycle tempered (after hardening of course) at 375° for ~an hour each cycle. 11" overall, and it has a slight recurve in it, which was intentional. It's hard, sharp, and fits in the hand well. The pictures are not fantastic, i apologize. Any thoughts, critiques, or recommendations are always welcome and much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
