    This one is SOLD, Thanks simmons777, I appreciate the business.

    I've been fiddling with this one for a while, and decided to finish it. It's a little different from what I normally do, but I'm pleased with the way it turned out.

    Steel- O1 X 5/32 Tool Steel
    Heat Treat- Blade was ground, normalized for two cycles, then brought back to temp and quenched in a quality quench oil. It was then tempered for three 2 hours cycles. Blade was allowed to cool completely between each cycle in the entire process.
    AOL- 10 1/2 inches
    Blade- 5 1/8 inches to front of guard
    Brass Guard is soldered in place
    Handle- 5 inches
    Handle material- Brass spacer, leather spacer, and Stag.
    Pommel- Brass
    RH sheath is hand sewn, made for this knife. Made from heavy vegetable tanned leather, tooled, stained, neatsfoot oil, and leather sheen.
    I'm asking 140.00 shipped in the USA and Canada
    PayPal or USPS M/O preferred
    Questions, comments or critiques welcome
