    I may just call it baby red and always use red shadetree on it! No name yet, but I like the pattern. Definitely follows the fat handle philosophy.

    rpn: I get you photos. and tedwca, too!

    I like baby red. It would look sweet with stainless pins.

    That is walnut.

    I get various cuts of English and black walnut from a gunstock maker in Northern California once a year. They are always good cuts, but you never know exactly what you'll see in the finished product. Those came out so perfect after one linseed oil soak I let them dry an extra 4 days and am finishing out with tru oil, to not change the coloration at all.

    I get good walnut finishes often, but this pair is in the top two. Really nice.

    the black one has been glued up, waiting for the handle finishing. The double edged bushbeater has been waiting for the glue up.

    The bushbeater just doesn't seem right with bluing, but I can fix that later if needed, the balance on colors is better this way. The dirk is half the weight of the heaviest, longest boar killer I've done, and wicked fast. Be much better for its purpose this way. It's not a bushbeater, though.

    The dirk is going to be sweet! Horn Dog chopped down a tree with the bolochette no problem...the dirk will be fast and tough and I'm sure!

    Yep! I emailed yesterday with the photo links for you. Sheath is being in the dehydrator after waterforming, then stitching and dying this afternoon.

    Those are great. What are the specs on the Slim Finn. Really like the looks of it.

    The slimm finn in general is my "necker/puukko" hybrid. This specific one has a bit of a dropped edge and guard, and its broader int he blade than the norm.

    The overall length is 7 inches and the blade is 3.5. The handle is compact, but usable, with the "fat handle" thing I focus on. no 1/8 inch scales with square edges!

    15N20 steel, .115 thick, forge finish is unpolished on this one, and I like the near perfect black.

    Sheath is... on the bench.
