Made this lil' guy for myself. It's been ages since I had one to carry, and was planning on just making a quick utilitarian one, but remembered how much I liked the ones I did with nice wood scales under the wrap.. This one is made of .170" thick Crucible CPM-S45vn, a steel I'm really enjoying using. Seems to take a nice, fine edge, and grinds and finishes quite nicely. The 4-1/2" blade is hollow ground on a 12" wheel, and ground thin because I like them slicey (about .007" before sharpening, give or take). The tang has been skeletonized as well as tapered, and then the amboyna scales were applied with epoxy and hidden pins, then ground so that the taper effect of the tang was slightly reversed, providing a slightly thicker butt to aid in retention. Both the tsukaito lace and the turk's head knot have been soaked in resin for durability. Overall length is just over 9", and point of balance is at the middle of the turk's head knot. Final weight is 5 ounces. Thanks for looking! It's fun doing these quick little knives in between bigger projects.
