Hello Tradgang.

I haven't posted much for a while because I haven't made anything new lately. I just recently came up with this Nessmuk style that is a bit different so I thought I'd share.

Here is a Nessmuk (TCK #6) and detail knife (TCK #1) package I put together.

The steel is L6 harvested from large antique saw blades. The knives are hardened and tempered to right at 60 HRC. The scales are Desert Ironwood cut from the same block.

The sheath is left carry, right hand cross draw and the #1 is just left carry. They can be separated for single carry but being a pancake sheath it hugs the body real nice and doesn't protrude much.

Thanks for looking and I hope all is well with y'all.

Todd

Those are dandies! I love Ironwood and it looks great on those blades. Pretty neat idea for the sheaths as well, they look very well made, great job!

That is slick!!
