so i did this last year in November 


but after that a friend decided to make a sheath for Christmas … well Christmas became my birthday and then beyond so this weekend he finally gave it back to me. he stamped my initials and died it black I plan to add a strap on it to hold it a little tighter when going through the brush. I sanded the handle some more and have since pics given the antler a coat of BLC and olive oil for the sheath 1 more coat needed on the latter and 2-3 on the handle so without further delay



and one black and white to really pop the colours


the blade on close inspection has some mistakes and when buffing it i got it a little hot  but other wise im really happy  


the friend traded me some oak wood for a bush knife i will make him. wondering should I go with 1095 or 1075 for the blade i have either to chose from?

I lost my last knife pocket knife somewhere so I had to whip up a replacement. On the bright side the pattern turned out nice, 54 layers. The handle is my first go at micarta and I think I'll go with different canvas colors if I decide to do it again. Something more natural. This example could be summed up in one syllable, "meh".

The sheath also leaves something to be desired, but it's good enough for government work.

Hmm.. I like this idea.. It would go well with the black and purple micarta "night sky". It might be a little better suited on a handle that could provide a larger canvas. This one is rather small (0.75" x 3").

The knife shall hence forth be known as Orion's Belt! *grin*

In all seriousness, I'll take a look for something that might be able to get worked in. I like the idea.

Indeed, I almost added an adverb for the purposes of disambiguation, but I didn't want anyone to think I was under the weather.

Given the available space, Sagitta and Delphinus both seem like viable options. While less exciting to look at, Sagitta seems to be slightly more appropriate for a knife handle.
