Saxon Gaucho knife

Recommended Posts

My latest Kitchen knife .

35250137561_e0b4d1607d_z.jpg

Inspired by seaxes, bowies, Khyber knives and Criollo Knives (Gaucho's knife) and yatagahn .
I have always been fascinated by these large "gentlemans companion knives" that form a part of so many cultures attire over so long a time. Equally at home in the kitchen or on adventures in the dim distant past, or for that matter a (slightly steam punk) dystopian future.....

Quite beautiful, i like how the steel seems to flow out of the handle.  How did you make the collar?
