The blade is 4-5/8 inch. The steel is W2 forged from 3/8 X 2 X 3-3/4 I had plenty of steel in that piece to work with.

The other parts are Sambar stag and the pins.

Pictures are jumbled.

Lin, I really like how you have incorporated the stag scales into your handle design. It is not an easy thing to do, but that is why you are a master blade smith.

Thank you guys.

It's kind of like having a Tiger by the tail. Once you get started and are committed, you have to figure out HOW you're going to make it work. [Smile]

Lin,
Very cool looking knife. I've always wanted to forge out an integral...had the pleasure of seeing Burt Foster demo that process at the Haywood Hammer-In this spring with a piece of round stock. Lot of work getting everything lined up. I was lucky enough to get his unfinished blade as a template. Thought you might like to see it...Jeff
