    Here's a photo of the finished knife out of the old Nash/Metro leaf spring. Wrought iron and curly maple make up the rest. Blade is 8 3/4", overall its 14". At first I wasn't going to grind the spine but since I put my mark there I went ahead and ground it. While I was in the process of doing that I noticed a little bit of a clip so I enhanced that more and ended up grinding a false edge. Not quite what I had in mind from the start but thats how I do most my knives anyway.
