I made this for the WCG and did not end up going because of a scare with my foot. I posted pics of this knife already in my sub forum.
The steel is made from AEB-L and 154cm stainless, a difficult mix to forge and work but well worth the effort. The handle is made from stabilized ebony with black paper micarta ferrule and butt cap with ivory micarta spacers.
The older I get the more I like things that are simple and clean, this is one of those knives. I love the dark handle against the etched Damascus blade. My wife and kids usually don't react much to the knives I make, but this one brought out more emotion and excitement than I expected to see from them.
$1700.00 shipped in the US, will quote international shipping.
As always, thank you for your support.
Love and respect
