My first stock removal blade

I cut out and profiled this knife from 1/8" 1095 stock. I ground the blade myself and sent it to David Farmer who heat treated the blade for me. The scales are walnut with brass pins.

Davis and I are currently working on a collaboration project with a slightly modified version of this blade. All blades will be done by David and will feature his wicked sharp convex edge. I will be doing the handles and sheathes.

I did a trade with David for this blade. I have had it lying around for months and finally got a handle and sheath for it.
