    New project finished! Sheaths are finished, just need to do the final buffing, sharpening then out the door to the new owners. Then on to the next build.

    Gorgeous as usual! But I haz a question: the handles seem to flare quite a bit as they join up to the guards, more so than your others that I've seen. Curious why?

    Yes, and good question, I'll be happy to answer. I have never seen the original knife in person, I made all of the previous replicas from photos I could find on line and in Sheldon's book. It wasn't until a year and a half or two years ago that I acquired high quality photos, from the current owner of the original knife Arthur Green, with straight on view and a ruler laid next to them that I really started taking note of the flare before the guard myself. The blades are all made from the same template that I made and the spacer pattern has been standardized with as close as I can figure G-10 and various nickel, copper and brass spacers. The wild card left is finding the right size and shape crown, that has been a challenge lately, and crowns have be getting pretty expensive lately, I've seen some they wanted $300.00 for.

    This is one of the photos I got from Arthur Green that I modeled these two replicas from. So yes, there is quite a notable flare toward the guard.

    ^Great example of one of the many reasons why Scott is my favorite Maker. Besides being a good dude, he's also one of the most professional and detailed guys I know.
