    Nice job. I think I've got some of those ebony saya pins laying around. That's a great idea.

    Well, if you're willing to overlook a half finished grind job that's been covered up, a rough choil and spine, a simple handle, and the lack of a long emoto, it's a hell of a knife, lol.

    Seriously though, the steel is great, and the geometry is actually very nice.

    For a project knife, which is exactly what this is, it's perfect.
